SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Fifth-graders from the Appleby Drama Club will be donning "Annie Jr." tees and black shorts to hit the court in a basketball fundraiser against their Appleby Elementary School teachers at the Spotswood High School Gymnasium on Saturday, Feb. 25.
The team of 10 and 11 years olds has been dubbed the Leaping Lizards in honor of the main character in the drama club's upcoming April production of "Annie Jr." Leaping lizards is of course one of the red-haired orphan's favorite sayings in the play.
Tickets for the game are $5 per person and will be sold at the door. All of the proceeds from the game and the concessions will go towards the Appleby Drama Club's April 27, 28 and 29 performances of the musical. The evening's festivities will also include raffles, half-court shot fun and refreshments.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Tip off is at 6:30 p.m. The Spotswood High School Gymnasium is located at 105 Summerhill Road.
