Schoolhouse Arts Center’s musical theater students will present “Annie Junior” May 18-20. Based on “Little Orphan Annie,” Annie Junior promises to be a delight for the whole family. Leapin’ Lizards!
The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals. 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 Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Performances of Annie Junior will be held on Friday, May 18, at 7 p.m., Saturday, May 19 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday, May 20, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $5 for children under 5.
Schoolhouse Arts Center is located at 16 Richville Road (Route 114) in Standish, just north of the intersection of Route 114 and Route 35. Call 642-3743 for reservations or buy tickets online at www.schoolhousearts.org.
