The Tabernacle Summer Theater presents a one-night-only performance of “Annie Jr.,” an approximately 60-minute version of the popular Broadway show “Annie,” on Saturday, August 13, at 7:30 pm. The script and music are adapted for younger performers. This year’s cast is made up of performers from ages five to 74, including 20 children and a handful of adults.

The Tabernacle Summer Theater began as a theater workshop for young people, and over the past eight years has presented versions of “Beauty and the Beast,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “The Wizard of Oz,” and “HMS Pinafore.” Under the direction of Virginia Hetherington, a Campground resident and stage director, the workshops have morphed into fully staged and costumed presentations. This year’s show will include musical hits “NYC,” “Easy Street,” and “The Sun’ll Come Out,” among others.

There is no admission charge, but a freewill offering is suggested. For more information, visit
