Community Partner Feature: Starlight Theatre

We kicked off our Girl Scout Starlight season on Friday night at the opening performance of Annie!

It was no hard-knock life for three of our Girl Scouts who took the stage with Starlight’s President & CEO Rich Baker! Daisy Girl Scout Allie from Grain Valley, Mo., Brownie Lucy from Parkville, Mo. and Junior Helen from Kansas City, Mo helped open the show and introduce the night’s give-away, Girl Scout Cookies!10499528_1157318627627215_1311509612539911080_o

The opening performance of Annie was a hit – more than 600 Girl Scouts, friends and family members attended the show!

Girl Scouts and Starlight have been partnering for nearly 10 years to bring live theatre opportunities to girls in our region.
