High schoolers aren’t the only ones getting a taste of Broadway this fall.
MIS Headliners will present Annie Jr., a youth musical based on the comic strip about a plucky little red-headed orphan and the Tony Award-winning Best Musical with a similar name.
With choreography by Joi Duncan and musical direction by Jordan Moore, directors Genevieve S. Croft and Shannon Howerton are preparing a cast of 50 fifth and sixth graders and a crew of 20 to present it from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.
Featuring beloved music from Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse, and Martin Charnin, Annie Jr. explores a charming orphan’s adventure in 1930s New York.
“The show is kid-friendly, and parents will be interested in sharing it with their children,” said publicity chair Hilary Lynch, a parent volunteer.
