The KIS Annie Jr. Musical Production



The Annie Jr. Musical is the new sensation at school. Mrs. Jones is the director of the Annie Jr. Musical. "I've loved musical theater as long as I can remember," says Mrs. Jones, "I loved that through music and dance, you could tell a story." All her life she was surrounded by musical theaters. She grew up watching the Sound of Music, The Wizard of Oz, Annie and many other classical musicals. When she became older, she performed in the operetta Hansel and Gretel where she played Hansel. As an adult, she organized a summer music program where students wrote, directed and performed an original musical.

About the production of the Annie Jr. Musical Mrs. Jones remarks, "I chose Annie for KIS because of its positive message but also because it is a wonderful introduction to musical theater for those who may not know a lot about it. I think it is a show that everyone can enjoy."

The Annie Jr. auditions were held on August 29th and 30th. Over fifty students participated and every single one of them received a role. Annie Jr. is a musical for everyone since it includes singing, acting, and dancing.  The show is promising to be a spectacular event with Nadya and Isabelle, two elementary students, starring as Annie. The KIS performance of Annie Jr. will premiere on the 24th of October with a second show on the 25th.
