Rachelle Walljasper (left) and Annie's orphan ensembleOn Saturday night, I had the distinct pleasure of taking two very special young ladies - eleven-year-old Hannah and six-year-old Madison - to the theatre, since Countryside Community Theatre's Annie seemed the perfect choice to foster their love for live performance.

"Would a show of such intimacy be swallowed by the size of the North Scott theatre?" asks Myatt in his program notes.
