Zeke Blackwell with the Sitka Fine Arts Camp is directing “Annie the Musical,” which debuts this weekend. Blackwell talked about managing the 50-member cast. Through double casting several roles, “Annie” has  maximized opportunities for many of it’s children and pre-teen actors. Blackwell directed last fall’s “East of the Sun West of the Moon.”

Annie will have four public performances, Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 2pm and 8pm, and Sunday at 2pm in the Odess Theater in Allen Hall. Tickets are on sale at Old Harbor Books. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens. For more information, call 747-3085.
