YOU can bet your bottom dollar the sun will come up tomorrow but it is too late to trade currency for a seat to Tenison Woods College’s rendition of Annie the Musical.
Earlier this month, the college’s Stage 1 Creative Arts (Musical) class presented Annie the Musical at the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre.
Based in 1930’s, the performances surrounded lead character Annie, a fiery young orphan girl, who is forced to live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan.
Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy businessman, Oliver Warbucks.
The students’ hard work and dedication certainly paid off, showcasing an almost sold-out performance to socially-distanced audience members.
They worked not only as actors, but also lighting designers, hair and makeup designers and costume designers.
The college thanked its choir which volunteered its time and expertise to be part of the chorus for the show as well as supporting staff Eliza Suggate, Beth Creedy, Jacqueline Zaccardo and Meghan Lynch who helped to make the show a success.
