PTC bringing Annie' to life in Bangor

BANGOR - This holiday season, Penobscot Theatre Company is undertaking one of its most ambitious projects to date.

The musical classic 'Annie' will be gracing the stage at the Bangor Opera House this December, with performances running from Dec. 5 through 29.

'Annie' is based on the long-running comic strip 'Little Orphan Annie' by Harold Gray. The strip ran for over 85 years, inspiring film adaptations and a radio show (a show that made an appearance of its own in last year's PTC holiday production of 'A Christmas Story'). However, it is the 1977 stage musical not to mention the 1982 film version of that musical that is the 'Annie' that holds the most meaning for us.

BANGOR - Parents who are interested in registering their children to be recipients of The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program, which provides Christmas gifts for children from birth through age 17, should contact the Bangor Citadel Corps for an appointment immediately by calling 941-2990. Registration began Oct. 19.

Each year, The Salvation Army in Bangor assists hundreds of families with toys and food for Christmas. Last year alone, nearly 600 families received Christmas help, an increase of 100 from the previous year. With the struggling economy, it is expected that more families will have limited resources to provide the extras such as new toys and a special meal this Christmas. Because of this, families are urged to register early so the Army is able to plan for adequate resources to meet the need.
