Annie, Jr. to show this week

07 July 2011

This summer many children in the area have been filling their free time by preparing for the showing of "Annie, Jr."

The Pratt Community College Performing Arts Program has been working with 4 to 18-year olds, since they auditioned in May, to prepare for the show.

"We have a fantastic group from all around the area who have worked hard to put together a show you won't want to miss," said Misty Beck, director of the show.

The musical is an adaptation of the "Little Orphan Annie" comic strip that takes us to 1930s New York where an 11-year-old orphan is determined to find her family.

Two productions will take place in Carpenter Auditorium, July 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. each night. There is a suggested donation of $4 to help offset the costs of the show. The musical will last about 90 minutes.

The cast has more than 60 members from Pratt, Turon, St. John, Medicine Lodge and all points in between. Along with being director, Beck is also the PCC theatre instructor.
