BAC Stage Kids presents ‘Disney’s 101 Dalmatians Kids"
November 12, 2008
The BAC Stage Kids will hold a production of “101 Dalmatians Kids” the next two weekends at the Donald W. Reynolds Black Box Theatre at the Brewery Arts Center.
The cast is comprised of young people ages 6 to 10, who are cast in such roles as Cruella DeVil, Roger and Anita, and Dalmatian puppies.

Leading the cast and crew of more than 30 local children are Summer Barth, 10 and Shasta Longo, 9, as Cruella, alongside a cast of singers, dancers, actors and acrobats retelling the classic story.
“I am incredibly proud and continually amazed by this great group of kids,” said Andie Anderson, head of the BAC Stage Kids program theatre program and director of “101 Dalmatians. Their hard work and enthusiasm shows through as they bring this story to life on the stage – even the tiniest little puppy shines!”
