Stu­dents bring An­nie to stage

Midwest Times - - ENTERTAINMENT - Francesca Mann

A team of tal­ented youths will hit the main stage this Satur­day for two per­for­mances of the mu­si­cal An­nie at Queens Park The­atre.

An­nie will be per­formed by the Cre­ative Works Youth The­atre, which fea­tures about 35 stu­dents from 12 schools, aged from seven to 18.

The mu­si­cal trans­ports the au­di­ence to the New York Mu­nic­i­pal Girls Or­phan­age in 1922, where the op­ti­mistic An­nie (played by Emmy Sil­vester) dreams of find­ing her par­ents.

Fed up of hav­ing to put up with the cruel Miss Han­ni­gan (played by Grace Fisher), An­nie de­cides to es­cape and be­gins search­ing for her fam­ily.

Paula Wilkin­son, who runs the the­atre group, said the stu­dents will put on an ex­cel­lent show.

“There are ab­so­lutely stars in the mak­ing,” she said. The group will per­form An­nie at 2pm and 7pm.

Tick­ets can be pur­chased at the box of­fice or
