Annie Jr. – The Musical

A Show That “Shines Like The Top of The Chrysler Building”
Annie+Jr.+-+The+Musical

GENERATION CHURCH – On Friday April 19th and Saturday April 20th, Jupiter Christian presented the musical Annie Jr. This musical is a story of redemption and adoption which was enjoyed by many audience members.

In this show, Annie (Sis Dennis and Zoe Gephart), lives in an orphanage owned by the evil and drunk Ms. Hannigan (Kylie Martin). Then one life changing day, Annie is a part of a publicity stunt by the billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Joshua Joseph). Eventually, Warbucks begins to love Annie and after lies and adversity try to pull them apart, Warbucks decides to adopt her and expose Ms. Hannigan.

The director of this musical was Ms. Sust, the theatre teacher from Jupiter Christian. Annie was the first show she ever watched when she was younger. Annie is also the name of her sister, and now Annie Jr. is the first show she ever directed, making it a monumental moment for her career.

Starting in January, the whole cast worked hard every week to make the show the best that it could be. From 3:00-5:30, they worked on blocking, music with Zeth Marra, and choreography with Jessie McCoy, till every part was complete and ready for tech week.

Tech week took place at Generation Church alongside their helpful staff which included Shannon Boyer and Aaron Schwindt who both helped with sound, lighting, and graphics. These aspects enhanced the performance visually and added so much to the show. During this week, the cast had to adjust to a new space and perfect the show the best that they could. AJ Caldwell and Erica Herrera assisted backstage, while Adel Roscoe helped with costumes and makeup, and Mrs. Hoffman kept everyone organized.

On opening day of the show, nerves and excitement built up as the cast and crew got ready. Finally, it was time to perform and as the lights shined, every single performer shined as well, ending in a beautiful performance, a happy audience, and a show to be remembered.
