For one family in the cast of “Annie”, they are taking the famous song from the play, “Tomorrow” literally. The famous line from the play is, “The Sun will come out tomorrow”, and it’s the sentiment carried out by the Sayle family who faced tragedy just a few weeks ago.
Jeff and Kathy Sayle were celebrating their 9 year old child’s birthday when a severe thunderstorm hit the area.
Kathy Sayle said, “The kids were hunkered down during the storm when they heard a loud boom. We didn’t realize the house had been hit until I went up to check in the attic which was consumed by smoke.”
Sayle got the kids out and the van out of the garage when the house became engulfed in flames. “When I got the kids out and took them to the neighbor’s house and looked back at my burning house, I felt a calm come over me. My kids were safe and I had saved what was valuable.” Sayle said.
When asked about her kids being in the cast of “Annie”, Sayle said, “It’s given them something to do to make their life as normal as possible and the rest of the cast and parents have been so supportive and giving.”
Faith and Luke Sayle can be seen as an orphan and Bundles during the production on Friday and Saturday night at 7pm, at Kenwood High School. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children. Proceeds from this production will go to the Sayle family.
According to one of the parents in the show, “The theme of ‘Annie’ is optimism amidst hardship, so this play definitely mirrors life this time”.
