There will be a story corner, make your own comic strip, coloring and sticker activities, face painting, goodie bags, crafts, games and basket raffles.

crimson-company-annie-posterThe idea for this comic-themed brunch was inspired by the Crimson Company’s upcoming production of “Annie the Musical.” The musical, with music by Charles Strouse, took home a slew of awards at the 1977 Tony Awards, including “Best Musical.” It’s based on the 1920’s comic strip “Little Orphan Annie” by Harold Gray.

The cast of “Annie” will also be on hand for meet and greets at the brunch. Mr. Rich Banick will there to take professional photographs, and, of course, delicious super-hero worthy refreshments will also be provided.  

Admission is $10.00 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the door on the day of the brunch, and all proceeds will help fund future Crimson Company productions and endeavors.

The Dunmore High School Crimson Company will present “Annie the Musical” on March 30, 31 and April 1, 5, 6, 7 and 8 at the DHS Auditorium. The curtain will rise each night at 7 p.m.
