Jenny Armor, a 12-year-old music prodigy, will play violin interludes at Theatre Odyssey’s Tenth Annual Ten-Minute Play Festival.
“Jenny comes to us thanks to the suggestion of our friends at Anna Maria Island Community Chorus and Orchestra,” said Tom Aposporos, Theatre Odyssey’s Board President. “She is trained in classical violin, and also plays bluegrass and Celtic fiddle,” he added. “She is selecting pieces to play during the set changes between plays and will also accompany plays where live music is needed.”
Festival tickets are available by visiting here. To purchase tickets by telephone call 941-799-7224.
The festival runs April 30, May 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. and May 3 at 2 p.m. at the Jane B. Cook Theatre, FSU/Asolo Center for the Performing Arts.
Last week, Theatre Odyssey announced that a sign language interpreter will assist the deaf and hard of hearing at the April 30 performance. Jenny Armor will appear at each performance during the festival.
