It’s everyone’s favorite time of the year where Big Walnut High School Drama Program puts on their spring show. This year, it is performing the classic musical Annie with fantastic music, acting, and dance numbers.
The musical features famous numbers including, but not limited to: Tomorrow; Fully Dressed; Easy Street and Little Girls.
It’s the 1930s and the Great Depression has been taking over New York City, leaving many homeless living in a “Hooverville” shanty town. In the Municipal Girls Orphanage, lives Annie (played by Lucy Guglielmi), a redheaded optimistic orphan who was left with a locket and a note from her parents reading that they will get her soon.
Annie tries to escape multiple times to go out and look for her parents, but the ruthless and money-hungry owner of the orphanage, Miss Hannigan (Elisabeth Yuhas), always catches her.
Annie’s life turns upside down when Grace Farrell (Mckenzie Pickrell), the Secretary for the billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Sam Will), chooses her to stay in the colossal Warbucks Mansion for two weeks. While Annie and her orphan friends are excited, Miss Hannigan couldn’t be more motivated to ruin Annie’s chance of getting adopted.
The opening night of Annie is Thursday, Feb. 23, followed by performances on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24 and 25, with the curtain going up all three nights at 7 p.m. Doors will open 30 minutes before the show and be sure to get there early.
General admission is $10; students and seniors get in for $8. Tickets will be available at the door.
Come out to support the Big Walnut Drama Program on their last performance of the school year.
