PIPPI LONGSTOCKING HITS THE STAGE AT PLT
Come on out to Pensacola Little Theatre as Acorn Productions, a tiny little branch of Treehouse Theatre, presents Pippi Longstocking, July 11-12 and 18-19. Director Caroline Bond and Music Director Heidi Branch lead Pippi and her gang through this classic tale of a pirate’s daughter and her imaginative adventures.
Based on the favorite children’s book, Pippi is the high-spirited, warm-hearted incarnation of every child's dream of freedom and power. Dressed in strange clothes and living with her horse and pet monkey, she possesses supernatural strength and untold wealth. When Pippi is not dancing with burglars who are trying to steal the gold coins given to her by her father (a pirate who is revered as a king by a tribe of South Sea island cannibals), she is at the circus fighting the strongest man in the world, or playing tag with policemen. This uproariously funny musical starring 8-year-old Zas Pitre as the world's most popular enfant terrible will delight the whole family.
Acorn productions are the perfect first theatrical experience. Set in the M.C. Blanchard Courtroom, these intimate productions encourage imagination and participation for audiences of all ages. Tickets are $12 for adults. Children 12 and under are only $6. Show times are 10:00 am and 2:30pm on Saturdays, 2:30pm on Sundays.

THE 2015 SEANGER CLASSIC MOVIE SERIES
After a week-long survey conducted for the Saenger Theatre in partnership with the Pensacola News Journal, the public has spoken and the results are in! The Saenger Classic Movie Series will begin Saturday, July 11 at 7pm with the 1950 black and white comedy, “Father of the Bride.”
When beautiful Kay Banks (Elizabeth Taylor) announces her engagement to Buckley Dunstan (Don Taylor), her doting middle-class father, Stan (Spencer Tracy), must contend with a variety of problems, ranging from money issues to wedding planning difficulties. As things get hectic, Stan's wife, Ellie (Joan Bennett), tries to be the calm in the center of the storm. At the heart of the comedy, though, is Stan's emotional tie to his little girl, and his realization that she has indeed grown up.
Every Saturday night the Saenger will feature a classic movie on one of the largest movie screens along the Gulf Coast. Movies will be shown each week at 7pm (there is one Saturday exception, please see the schedule below) and tickets are only $5.00 each. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, June 19 at 10am at the Saenger Theatre Box Office only. All movies will be seated on a first-come-first-served basis.
