Annie, The Musical
The Cypress Christian School Performing Arts Department treated audiences to the amazing production of Annie on March 5-7, 2020 at The MET Church. This fantastic show had it all! The performance showcased dancing orphans, a singing billionaire and everything in between.
Main roles of Annie, Mrs. Hannigan, Grace, Farrell and Oliver Warbucks were supported with a wonderful cast of orphans, cons, bums, waitstaff and New Yorkers. Based on the classic comic strip, Annie the Musical opened on Broadway in 1977 and was quickly established as a popular show among theater lovers. Set in New York during the Great Depression, this musical tells the story of the endlessly hopeful orphan Annie and her turn of fortunes with the arrival of the wealthy Daddy Warbucks. While Warbucks helps Annie search for her real parents, the spunky orphan and her wealthy benefactor help each other discover what it means to be a family.
This talented cast kept audiences enthralled. This musical warmed every heart with classic songs like “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Tomorrow,” and “N.Y.C.”
Special thanks to directors (Kiley Harris, Heidi Johnson, Jessica Mynes and Tania Overton), the cast, backstage tech crew and CCS parents from all grade levels for their tireless efforts in making this show such a phenomenal adventure.
