What a Show!

Dear Editor:

People come. They stand in line waiting to claim their seat. The feeling of anticipation and excitement is real. Then the lights go down, the music starts and the curtain is drawn. A set is revealed and actors come to life. The magic of live theater begins.

For three nights and one matinee, those who saw the Mineral Wells High School production of the Broadway musical “Annie” were transported to another time and place. But the lesson of optimism taught by a little girl in the Great Depression is as relevant today as it was then. People said that this show was the best ever seen locally.

It was my privilege to participate in this play and again be part of live theater. As a government/history major in college, the opportunity to play the role of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a special treat. Congratulations and thanks to Kris Allen, Mac Chestnut, Jennifer Flowers Jones and Beth Williams for all of their hard work. And congratulations to the entire cast and crew for a truly first-rate job. Only those who have worked with a play know how much time, blood, sweat and tears are required.
