This year's Middle School musical, Annie JR, involved forty-four students in the cast and twenty-two girls on the stage crew. The production, featuring the titular character from Harold Gray's comic strip Little Orphan Annie, ran from November 9-11 and played to sold-out audiences. On top of their stellar singing, dancing, and acting, the girls learned to work as an ensemble, help each other backstage with set changes, costume changes, and the like, all while presenting a calm and cool demeanor to the audience, which is the magic of live theatre.
Join us for the Upper School play, Brainstorm on November 30, December 1 and 2, 7:30 pm in the Sophie Center. Brainstorm is a unique theatrical investigation into how teenagers' brains work, and why they're designed by evolution to be the way they are. The play is designed to be created and performed by a company of teenagers, drawing directly on their personal experiences to provide imaginative illustrations of the science.
