Dunkirk Middle School to perform Annie Jr.

Leapin’ Lizards! The popular comic strip heroine Little Orphan Annie takes center stage in ANNIE JR., an adaptation of one of the world’s best-loved and most-performed musicals.

With pluck and positivity, Annie (Isabella Surma) charms everyone she meets despite a next-to-nothing start in the Depression-era New York City of the 1930s. She is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan (Olivia Yerico-Piazza).

When billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Zakery Delong) decides to invite an orphan to his mansion for Christmas, Annie gets her chance to experience NYC anew outside the confines of the orphanage. Despite Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, Annie befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Nicholas Hernandez) and finds a new home alongside Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell (Haileigh Pawlak), and a lovable mutt named Sandy (Matthew Levan).

Come and hear some of the show’s famous hits such as Tomorrow and NYC at the Dunkirk Middle School Auditorium. Show times are Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. The students have been working for months to present this amazing show to the public and are very excited to perform. Come and see what all the excitement is about. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
