We’re getting a new deal for Christmas! And its only May! Why— who’d’ve thunk that Annie the Christmas musical would make a great mid-may production? Why— leapin’ lizards— The St. Gabriel Miracle Players! That’s who! They know that the sun’ll come out— tomorrow! And they’re production of Annie will set you smiling, and keep you grinning all through the well-worn, time-honored classic. Directed by Heidi Toll with Musical Direction by Mary Beth Bunting and Choreography by Jillian Arnold,
You are not defined by where you start but by where you end up. And if you end up like Leo Clark and Jack Gable you’re going to need an entire Webster’s dictionary to define just exactly where you’ve ended up. Or how you’ve ended up. Or as whom!

Who knew that The Salem Players were passing themselves off as a little community theatre when in actuality they were harboring operatic talent in their repitoire?

A brilliantly poignant comic play written by Steve Martin,
