The Music Department’s production of Annie on April 5 and 6 was a hit with large audiences on both Friday and Saturday afternoon. Directed by Michelle Booth and Victoria McComb and after months of practice and rehearsals, the cast came together to pull off the singing, dancing and acting needed to make a great show.
Below are Veritas photos from dress rehearsal and from Saturday’s performance.
