New Horizons Middle School Drama Club, in collaboration with Music Theater International Broadway Junion, the Shubert Foundation and the New York City Department of Education Office of Arts & Special Projects will perform their first annual musical, “Annie Jr.” at 7 p.m., May 30-31 in the PS 32/MS 442 auditorium, 317 Hoyt Street.
New Horizons, based in Carroll Gardens, is one of only a handful of schools citywide to receive a grant to produce this production. Students are ecstatic to be making their stage debut with this well-known, well-loved show.
Based on the popular comic strip, “Annie Jr.” tells the story of a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan.
In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin D. Roosevelt and finds a new family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
