Notre Dame’s fine arts students putting on Annie
A certain spunky, little red-haired orphan is about to make an appearance in Red Deer.
Notre Dame High School’s fine arts students are putting on Annie from Thursday to Saturday at Red Deer’s Memorial Centre.
The comic strip heroine of the beloved, family-friendly musical will be heading out into the wide world with her dog Sandy after foiling the nasty obstructions of orphanage matron, Miss Hannigan.
In her search for the parents who abandoned her on the doorstep of the New York City orphanage, Annie will meet U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, billionaire Oliver Warbucks and other colourful characters.
This Red Deer production is directed by Jennifer Cocolicchio and stars Tevra Plamondon and Emily MacQuarrie.
Tomorrow and It’s a Hard-Knock Life are some popular songs from this adventure-filled production by Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin.
Shows run at 7 p.m. nightly, as well as at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Tickets are $20 from the school. Members of the public can also attend a 7 p.m. pay-what-you-can preview performance tonight.
