Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including "Tomorrow."
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations... and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Annie is the perfect family-friendly musical!
About Rosa's Drama Program
The Rosa Drama program will be presenting its fifteenth musical production. Besides musical theater, the members of the drama program have presented several dramatic programs, including skits for National Smoke Out Day. A few years ago they premiered their first-ever black and white silent film depicting scenes from the I.B. 5 Areas of Interaction and produced a film on the ILPs. The performances were presented to the school on the Rosa TV system and met with great success!
The drama program is open to any Rosa student interested in the art of drama - whether it be as a performer or behind the scenes. These productions include over 100 students as actors, scenery producers, lighting and sound producers, costume and make-up artists, etc...
