Annie - A Splendid Show!
Macaroni Kid Kitsap were guests of Bainbridge Performing Arts last weekend for their Saturday matinee of Annie. What a terrific show! The children, adult, and canine actors and singers did an outstanding job of delivering a top-notch performance to a sold out crowd.
The musical followed the rags-to-riches story of the world’s best-loved orphan as she escapes a life in the orphanage, meets President Roosevelt and finds a new home with billionaire Oliver Warbucks. Annie, an orphan, and her dog Sandy are placed in the lap of luxury for a week as part of a publicity campaign for Oliver Warbucks. However, Annie’s stay turned out to be much more than anyone had bargained for as she worked her way into everyone’s hearts and learned a few things for herself.
With book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Martin Charnin, BPA’s production was directed by Steven Fogell and Gabe Carbajal, and included vocal direction by Lynda Sue Welch and choreography by Shannon Sheehan.
