GEMS Presents "Annie"
Posted on 11/09/2015
Gramercy Elementary Magnet School’s 5th and 6th graders presented the musical “Annie” on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 in the GES cafeteria to an enthusiastic audience. Annie (Marissa Duhe’) was a young orphan girl in the 1930’s who stole everyone's hearts despite her meager upbringing. Annie’s dream was to find her parents who abandoned her years ago at a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, Miss Hannigan (Braelyn Brazan). She and her co-conspirators, Rooster Hannigan (Romell Johnson) and Lily (A-Keya’ Davis) created a plot to prevent Annie from being adopted by billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Joshua Poche). However, truth wins out in the end and Annie, Mr. Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell (Christian Louque), and a lovable dog named Sandy (Kailey Brooks) live happily ever after. Special thanks to all of the parents, teachers, and staff who have made this production possible. We would like to thank our Producer, Theatrical, and Music Director Crystal Casaroti; Assistant Director and Choreographer Lindsey Chauvin; and Set Designer Roxanne Machen for their many hours of hard work preparing our talented students. Thanks to the River Region Arts and Humanities Council for partially funding this event!  READ MORE...
