The sun doesn’t need to come out for the talented students at to shine. For the last three months, the Weber Middle School drama club actors, musicians, and crew members have been hard at work rehearsing and preparing for this year's winter musical production of: "Annie Jr."
"Annie Jr.,” one of America’s most loved musicals, is set during the Great Depression. The show follows the journey of a spunky redhead orphan as she searches for her parents and then finds love and happiness in the home of Mr. Warbucks.
“Annie Jr.,” directed by Weber English teacher Stacey Portmore-Davies and musically directed by Salem music teacher Allison Friedman, features more than 90 talented students in the cast, pit orchestra, and crew. Performances will be held on Friday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 12, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, March 13, at 3 p.m. in the Weber auditorium. Tickets are $5 for general admission, $3 for students and senior citizens, and children under five are free.
There will also be a bake sale during the intermission of each performance and proceeds will be donated to the in the honor of another important orphan in the show: Sandy, the dog! The humor and the warmth of this musical pull at the heartstrings and remind us that when we are feeling sad, we only have to follow Annie's wonderful advice: "The sun'll come out tomorrow, so you gotta hang on till tomorrow.” We hope to see you there!
