Cast bubbling over with excitement as ‘SUDS’ draws near

South Boston News
“SUDS, the Rocking 60’s Musical Soap Opera” opens at the Chastain theatre in the Prizery on Friday, April 23 at 8:00 p.m., with evening performances on April 24, 27, 30, May 1, 4, 7, and 8 and matinees on May 5, 2 and 9. Tickets are available online at or by calling the box office, 434-575-7473.
As cast member Alison Streeter says of HCLT’s spring musical, “SUDS”: “On the surface, it seems like a musical revue with a loose plot, but it’s much more intricate than (I think) any of us anticipated. Vicky (Thomasson, director) calls it “The biggest little show” and I agree!”

Casting call on tap next week for ‘Annie’

South Boston News
Professional actress Jesse Graham will star as “Annie”’s scheming but good-for-laughs Miss Hannigan. The actress, coincidentally, got her start as an orphan in a Tennessee production of “Annie” when she was only seven years old. Auditions will be held for the beloved musical next Monday, April 26, at 7 p.m. at The Prizery. Each child should bring a prepared song and a one-minute monologue. The monologue should be memorized. Participation won’t conflict with Halifax County Little Theatre’s production of “Ramona Quimby.”
