That spunky little orphan and her mutt will be singing up a storm this weekend as the Chenery Middle School presents its production of “Annie” the 1977 musical by Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin and Thomas Meeha. The show has become one of the most popular Broadway shows ever produced, with more than 700 shows performed annually.
Eighth grader Maya Chen-Jones plays the title character, who with her dog, Sandy, get into adventures in New York City during the Depression of the 1930s, all the while singing such Broadway standards as, “Tomorrow,” “It’s a Hard Knock Life,” “Little Girls,” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”
There are two performances remaining, tonight and tomorrow, May 19 and 20, at 7 p.m. in the Chenery Middle School auditorium.
Tickets are ADULTS: $10 in advance, $12 at the door; STUDENTS: $8.
Tickets are also on sale at Champions in Belmont Center, and available online at bhs-pac.org/cmsannie.
