A junior version of ‘Annie’ was staged at Marco Island Charter Middle School, in late May at the school gymnasium. The students were directed by Karen Raymond, assisted by Mary Jo O’Regan, and featured the MICMS Allstarz. The students did an outstanding job singing and dancing, and portrayed their roles flawlessly. “One of the best performances ever!” was the constant comment after the show! A boost to the quality level of the production came in the realistic scenery and props. Not only was it a great depiction of New York City in December 1933, but President Roosevelt was in the familiar wheelchair! In all there were 38 student actors/actresses and seven stage crew.
