Lighthouse Theater Productions presents Pollyanna
A local area theater group known as "Lighthouse Theater Productions" will present Pollyanna on April 19, 20 and 21 at 7 p.m. at the Central Square Historic Auditorium in Glenwood. Tickets are available at the door. Opening night is "Feed the Hungry" night with admission being a donation of one item for the food shelf plus $1 for Kids Against Hunger.
This theatrical adaptation of Eleanor Porter's book, Pollyanna, and David Swift's screenplay for Disney, was written by area playwright, Cindy Burgess of Starbuck. Burgess and her daughter, Cassie Blair of Morris, are co-producers and directors.
Seventy-two adults, teens, and children from Villard, Lowry, Glenwood, Starbuck, Morris and Hancock tell the story of a 1912 town affected by the tyranny of fear and gossip. With the help of one young girl, this town learns to look for the good in life and in each other. When tragedy strikes, together they learn what is really important.
