After a successful and rousing opening weekend, the cast and crew of “Annie” are gearing up for their final three shows this coming weekend.

Belting out favorites like “NYC”, ‘Tomorrow” and “It’s a Hard Knock Life”, Leah Clark playing Little Orphan Annie and the rest of the cast wowed audiences. The vocals and acting is high caliber with this cast of about sixty local youth ages eight to eighteen. Growing Dreams Productions’ rendition of “Annie” is a real treat for audiences of all ages.

The three remaining shows are Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 20, at 2 p.m., and Saturday, April 20 at 7 p.m. at the Sandpoint High School auditorium. Doors open 30 minutes before curtain. Concessions are available for purchase at the show, as are roses to be delivered to your favorite cast members. All proceeds benefit Growing Dreams Productions, Inc.

The role of Annie features a talented newcomer, Leah Clark, with a big voice and lots of moxie. Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks and his secretary, Grace, spotlight accomplished veterans Burton Anderson and Rene York. Crotchety Miss Hannigan highlights the comic talent of Emma Riach, with orphans Avery Baker, Ada Anderson, Semmone Draper, Jordan Rosenau, Naomie Anderson, Baylie Hindle, and Cheyenne Logan as Hannigan’s raggedy tormenters. The rascally Rooster Hannigan will be played by Zane Rasor, with Joellie Heneise as his ditzy girlfriend Lily St. Regis.

Altogether there are over 50 roles filled by energetic and talented local youth from ages 8 to 18 on stage in this rendition of “Annie”, plus the team of over 20 creative teens working on set construction, running crew, props, make-up, and costuming.

And, of course, we would not be able to do all this without the support of every one of the parents and all the other enthusiastic adult volunteers.

Each year, director Jeannie Hunter, musical director Jon Brownell, choreographer Becky Lucas, costumer Angie Aller and the rest of the production team outdo themselves in bringing us a show to remember. With so much talent behind the scenes and so much talent on the stage, you’ll want to buy your tickets for Annie early, before they are all gone.

Tickets for “Annie” are available at ticketor.com/growingdreamsproductions, Eve’s Leaves, and at the door (if any are remaining).

A huge thank you to the Bonner County Daily Bee and our sponsors — Idaho Forest Group, Schweitzer Mountain Resort, Mountain West Bank Sandpoint Branch, Arby’s of Sandpoint, Winter Ridge Natural Foods, Realm Partners, The Pottery Bug, Pierce Auto Center and Bonner General Health.
