Actor to star as Daddy Warbucks at WCST will shave head as a fundraiser

On September 29th Windham Center Stage Theater is hosting a fundraiser for their upcoming production of “Annie”. One of the cast members, Randy Hunt will be shaving his head for the role of Daddy Warbucks. He is raising money for St. Baldrick’s foundation.

What is the St. Baldrick’s foundation? According to its website: “Every two minutes a child is
diagnosed with cancer – about the time needed to log onto your laptop, order a coffee, or get through a TV commercial break. It’s also about the same amount of time it takes to have your head shaved to support childhood cancer research. Join the fight against childhood cancers by participating in a St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event near you.”

The head-shaving fundraising event will occur this Sunday, September 29th, at 12:30 p.m. at the Windham Town Hall.

Randy Hunt stated, “I’m trying to raise $1,000 to help with the Baldrick's mission of fighting childhood cancer. Since 2006, they have raised nearly $280 million! I’m thrilled that in some small way *WE* can help make a difference in the lives of kids going through one of the worst things that can be thrown at them -- a cancer diagnosis.”

In order to do that, Hunt is asking his fellow actors to be a part of the fundraising effor. “BUT - I NEED YOUR HELP! For every $5 a crew member of Annie donates - their name will be entered into a drawing to be one of the three people who will get to help shave my head with the electric clippers! Our Annie (Meghan) will get the first swipe at my precious locks. Then one other cast member and one staff/crew member will each take one side of my head to render it bald. All crew members will get one free entry into the drawing!”

For those who wish to help Hunt reach his goal and wishes to donate to the cause - can do so online at
