Annie, celebrates its 35th Anniversary and opens at Jeffersonville High School Thursday, November 28.
Annie was first produced on Broadway in 1977 and ran for a record 6 years at the Alvin/Neil Simon Theatre in New York City winning 7 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Annie follows the rags-to-riches tale of a plucky but charming eleven-year-old orphan who refuses to be anything but optimistic, despite the presence of the wickedly funny Miss Hannigan, the battle-axe who runs the orphanage where Annie lives.
When Annie is selected by Grace Ferrell, Oliver Warbuck's personal assistant, to spend Christmas in the billionaire tycoon's mansion, the scheming Hannigan and her sleazy brother Rooster hatch a dark plan to get rich at Annie's expense. Despite some twists and turns and heart-wrenching moments, we all learn from ANNIE, the world's most beloved orphan, that the sun really does come out Tomorrow.
Jeffersonville High School Theater brings this story to life. A cast of 70 JHS actors, joined by 38 student technicians are hard at work with music, dance, staging and technical rehearsals. Producers added 32 elementary school orphan cast members and another 35 elementary school singers.
Student and senior citizen tickets are $5, adults are $10.
Group discounts for organizations purchasing 10 or more tickets together in advance are $5 each.
The show runs from Thursday, November 29th to Sunday, December 2nd. Evening performances are at 7:30pm and matinees are at 2pm.
