Super 8

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

It’s a good time, this J.J. Abrams-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced movie—a critter picture conjoined with a coming-of-age picture. Joe (Joel Courtney), the young teenage son of a local police officer (Kyle Chandler), is making a zombie movie with his friends in their hilly Ohio steel town. One night while filming a scene on the train platform, an Air Force train derails before their very eyes, some strange boxcar cargo making its presence known. Then the strangeness starts happening.

A popular saying in show business is, “Never work with children or animals.” Thankfully Stage Door Entertainment and director Terrence R. Williams didn’t heed that warning when they decided to tackle a production of the classic musical Annie for Super Summer Theatre’s 2011 season opener at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park.
