for a presentation of “My Three Angels,” by Sam and Bella Spewak. This production is a reprise of a production by the Harbor Players (the original name of the Willapa Players) performed in the old Raymond High School auditorium in 1958. The original production starred Bob Hannan, Jim Kennedy, and Jim Watts as the “three angels.”
Jim Watts, one of the three original “angels,” and Jim White are directing the current production. The only other known living member of the original cast is Michelle (Mike) Parks, nee Millican.
Watts was one of the founding members of the Willapa Players, which incorporated as a non-profit organization at the time of the first production of “My Three Angels.” He remarked, “This current production will be my “swan song.” I was 30 when I first performed in “My Three Angels,” and at 86 it is time to quit.”
Production dates are set for Friday, June 13; Saturday, June 14; and Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21, with a matinee on Sunday, June 15. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $8 for seniors and students (through college), and are available at South Bend Pharmacy and Just a Haircut in South Bend and at Everyone’s Video and More and The Pitchwood in Raymond.
