Baylor-scott-white_313x28Thanksgiving is around the corner and the extended family is coming to town… but how do you spend some quality time together during this busy holiday season? Our friends at Baylor Scott & White Health have the key! They’ve let us in on what live performance, community, and accessible entertainment means to them. Won’t you join the fun?

It’s a timeless story. A world-class production. One of those can’t-miss-out moments that the Long Center brings to Austin. Many of us know and love the musical Annie. Whether you’ve seen Annie before or are planning to see it live for the first time, it’s a heart-warming performance to look forward to.

You know the story well—the redhead who first came to life as Little Orphan Annie in Harold Gray’s popular comic strip is now a musical-theatre staple. This Thanksgiving, the original creators—lyricist-director Martin Charnin, and creative colleagues Charles Strouse and Charles Meehan—return with this beloved story whose 1977 Broadway premiere won 7 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Live performances, by their nature, are one-of-a-kind. They have a unique ability to captivate, inspire and remind us what it means to be human. If you’ve experienced a live performance, you likely know how moving and memorable they can be. At Baylor Scott & White Health, we are committed to supporting our community and the things that bring us together, such as performances at the Long Center. Through our sponsorship of the eyeGO to the Arts program, we are thrilled to help make these inspiring experiences accessible to high school students in Central Texas.

eyeGo to the Arts empowers high school students to consider live performances as a viable, relevant and fun entertainment option by offering them the opportunity to purchase $5 tickets to Long Center shows. Baylor Scott & White is proud to be part of making high quality music, comedy, dance and theater financially feasible for our youth, just as we are proud to bring the highest quality of health care to Central Texas.
