Leapin' Lizards! This version of the popular musical has been specially adapted for young performers, with music transposed into keys appropriate for young voices. Annie is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Please note that students who sign up for this class must register for Lunch-in for the week of August 18–22.
**PREPARATION: It should be noted that no musical experience is necessary to sign up for this production. However, unlike our one-week non-musical workshops which do not require any formal preparation, all students enrolled in Annie must come to the first day prepared to sing a song from a Broadway musical. Recommendations and further instructions will be provided once you sign up. It should also be noted that students are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the music from the show before the first day of this workshop.
