It’s the time of year again for Disney songs and musical show tunes at the Anacortes Community Theatre.
The annual fundraiser is for Class ACT, the after-school teaching branch of ACT that provides acting classes for students in kindergarten through high school.
Tuition that parents pay for those classes goes to the instructors. Grants, along with proceeds from the “Broadway Musical Revue,” make ends meet for everything else it takes to run the program, said director Willow McLaughlin.
About 30 performers are signed up for the show May 18 and 19. Each will be singing one or two tunes. McLaughlin said a number of them are teaming up to tackle duets.
The songs are appropriate for all ages and come from a variety of films, including “Mary Poppins,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Les Miserables,” and “My Fair Lady.” The program includes numbers from more recent films and animated films such as “Shrek” and “The Little Mermaid.”
McLaughlin said a multitude of talented Skagit Valley singers turned out because this is one night when they get to pick their part.
“It’s for the actors in situations where you never got cast for the part, but you always wanted to play that role,” she said.
This is the fourth year ACT has held the fundraiser.
McLaughlin said the theater class will sing a number to show what the program delivers.
