"Annie" School Production

"The sun will come out...tomorrow!" was enthusiastically chanted all around the school as the Beast from the East invaded our annual musical production.

The cast and crew of Annie have worked tirelessly since September, literally through hail, wind, rain and snow! It was with relief from staff and students when the snow finally melted away and our hardworking musical theatre group could finally take to the stage.
 
The assembly hall stage was transformed into New York City, 1933, where a plucky young orphan, Annie (Amy H Y9) and her friends sang about the Hard Knock Life. If being an orphan wasn't hard enough, the presence of the resplendent but dishevelled Ms Hannigan (played by Freya W Y10) was enough to have the orphans ready to pop like the confetti cannons backstage! Luckily Mr Warbucks (Denise O Y9) and his assistant Grace F (Alice B Y10) were on hand to rescue them from Hannigan and her cronies Rooster (Imani B Y10) and Lily (Cristine D Y9). No performance could be complete without an appearance of Sandy the dog, mastered by the very talented Anzelika G Y10, who once again stole the show.
 
 
The Musical Production is always a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone involved, but this year felt particularly special. There was such friendship and support between students all the way through from Year 7 to Year 10, who have made lasting friendships and memories that will never be forgotten. Ms Monaghan, Mr Wells and Ms Johnson are so proud of our students’ exemplary behaviour, kindness and diligence. Their love for the performing arts is evident, and will no doubt have a tremendous impact on both their academic grades and personal wellbeing.
 
We thoroughly encourage all students to get involved in next year's production!
