Ever wondered what happened to Little Orphan Annie?
Musical theatre students at Notre Dame High School are presenting Annie Warbucks.
This sequel to the 1977 Tony Award-winning musical Annie starts just after the curly topped red-head former orphan has been adopted by gazillionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks.
Everything seems to be going right, until Commissioner Doyle informs Warbucks that the adoption is illegal since he is not married.
This production will take audience members through madcap antics as Warbucks tries to find a suitable woman to marry.
Will he be successful in this quest before Annie is sent back to the orphanage?
Musical theatre students from Ecole Secondaire Notre Dame High School are pleased to showcase Annie Warbucks on Feb. 6 to 8 at Red Deer’s Memorial Centre.
It’s been a great experience to work with such an amazing group of people, said director Jordan Johnson at Notre Dame High School.
“We are working so hard” to make this show a memorable one.
From a student perspective, the production is helping to engage young people with theatre, musicals and also build many long-lasting friendships, said Jacob Mydland, a Grade 10 student at Notre Dame High School.
Showtimes are 7 p.m., and there’s a matinee on Feb. 8 at 1 p.m. Tickets are $20 from the school office.
