CHESTER -- The Chester High School Theater Department will host its annual Theater Camp on March 4, 5 and 7 in Juergen's Gymnasium, where CHS students will rehearse and perform the musical, "Annie," March 14-17.

During the camp, which is for 1st through 8th graders, participants will learn a song and dance from "Annie." They will perform it on the same stage at 7 p.m. March 16, right before the curtain opens for the CHS production of "Annie".

Camp applications have already been sent to all Chester schools. Forms and the $30 fee must be returned to Chester High School no later than Feb. 15. The fee includes a T-shirt and a ticket to "Annie".

Extra T-shirts are available for $15 in both youth and adult sizes (extra fees assessed for shirts 2XL or bigger).

"Annie" tickets will be available to the general public starting on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at $8 for adults and $5 for students. Buy them in the Chester High School office.

The public is also invited to buy official "Annie" cast shirts in both youth and adult sizes. Youth shirts are short sleeve T-shirts or long sleeve T-shirts. Adult shirts are short sleeve T-shirts, long sleeve T-shirts and hooded sweatshirts. Shirts are black with the official "Annie" logo in red and white print. Crew shirts are black long sleeve T-shirts with a small logo in white print.

T-shirts are $15; long-sleeved Ts $20; hooded sweatshirts are $30 (more for 2X, 3X, 4X, and 5X).
