Rehearsals continue for Honk, Jr. production

By Angela Martin - Guest columnist

There are lots of barnyard animals at the theatre these days as our young cast busily learns their music, dances and lines for our next production, Honk, Jr.

Honk, Jr. tells the story of the Ugly — a duckling who just doesn’t fit in with his family. This production is filled with young people from all over our county and they are getting excited about their performances. We are happy to share this story of acceptance, fun and humor that is a great story for adults and young people.

This family-friendly production will open on June 22 and run until July 2. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances will take place at 7:30 p.m., while our Sunday performances begin at 2:30 p.m. This production is proudly sponsored by Star Communications and is directed by Linda Carr. The production features 35 young people and will be a great way to kick off your summer.

Also we would like to give a huge congratulations to the recipient of the Lois Weaver Performing Arts Scholarship, Sarah Day. Sarah received the scholarship, which is open to all seniors in Sampson County who are majoring in an arts discipline in school. The scholarship is proudly sponsored by the Sampson County Arts Council and Sampson Community Theatre. Sarah is a senior at Clinton High School and the daughter of Derek and Kathy Day. Sarah will be attending UNC – Greensboro in the fall and majoring in Theatre. She has been extremely active at SCT and has been in numerous productions such as, High School Musical (Sharpay), Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Narrator) and most recently she portrayed Madame Thenardier in Les Miserables School Edition. We wish her the best of luck at UNCG and look forward to seeing all the great accomplishments she has moving into her collegiate career.
