Milford Drama To Present Annie

By Angela Gott

Leapin’ Lizards! The popular comic strip heroine is going to take the stage at Milford High School when the classic musical Annie opens March 1.

Annie (Jacqueline Bayly) 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 (Bethany Lennox). In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil plotting with her brother Rooster (Dakota Madanat) and his girlfriend Lily (Amber-Lee Miller), befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Jacob Leonard) and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Guest Artist – Mr. Jerry Birl), his personal secretary Grace Farrell (Kate Forehand) and a lovable mutt named Sandy (Will Evans).

Director, Ms. Carissa Meiklejohn, is delighted to be working on this well-loved show. “We have such a diverse cast, and it’s really exciting to see how they all work together,” she said. Students range from 8th to 12th grade and encompass both the Central Academy and high school. She went on to say, “Our Sandy is a student at Morris Early Childhood Center, and the actor portraying Daddy Warbucks has performed in many community productions. It is great to have him as a mentor to our aspiring actors.”

Annie is a beloved musical packed with laughter, dancing, and many familiar songs like “Tomorrow,” “Hard Knock Life,” and “I Don’t Need Anything But You.” This production promises to be fun for cast, crew, and audience. It is truly a spectacular family-friendly event!

Performances will be held in the Milford High School auditorium on Thursday, March 1; Friday, March 2; and Saturday, March 3. All three evening shows will begin at 7:00 p.m. There will also be an afternoon matinee on Saturday, March 3 at 1:00 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door beginning an hour before show time. Adults and Seniors $8.00, Students $6.00. Also, anyone who brings his/her ticket from the Lion’s Club Spaghetti Dinner being held in the Milford High School cafeteria on March 3 will receive $1.00 off admission. If you attend the show first, you can receive $1.00 off your dinner ticket.
