First of all, let me thank our Director, Cyndi Atkins, for arranging a mid-week performance at Hilltop Manor here in Pella. A good number of the orphans, servants and the principal characters were on hand to entertain the residents last night. Both of our Annies (Hannah Emmert and Rachel Peter) were able to perform. The residents also heard “Hard Knock Life,” “I Think You’re Gonna Like It Here,” “Easy Street,” “Gussie Her Up,” and “Don’t Need Anything But You.” Thanks to all the orphans (for whom the trip was optional) and the parents who helped being taxi drivers!
The word of mouth from last weekend’s performances prompted a flurry of phone calls and visits to the Pella Community Services office. Many heartfelt thanks to Brenda Ross who has spent much of the past two weeks managing the ticket board.
As of Wednesday afternoon, less than 10 single seats were left on the floor of the auditorium (that’s 10 total for all three shows). There are still General Admission balcony seats available for all three shows, but they are dwindling rapidly!
If you’re thinking of coming from out of town, we suggest that you call and order tickets by phone (call Tom or Wendy at 641.620.9107) Wednesday night or Thursday. If you live in Pella or the surrounding area we suggest you pick up tickets at the Pella Community Center between 7:30-11:30 a.m. or 12:30-4:30 p.m. tomorrow.
After 4:30 p.m. tomorrow, there will be no advance ticket sales. All remaining tickets will be sold at the door.
