St. Mary’s Production of ‘Annie’
Transition Year students from St. Mary’s, Mallow entertained a full Aemilian Theatre on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th of February with their version of the hit musical ‘Annie’. Set in Depression era New York, the musical tells the story of Annie, who is living a life of misery at Ms. Hannigan’s orphanage. However, Annie’s luck changes when she is chosen to spend Christmas at the home of billionaire, Oliver Warbucks. Mr. Warbucks undertakes to help Annie find her real parents. However, the spiteful Ms. Hannigan has other ideas and plots to spoil Annie’s happiness. All cast members performed brilliantly on both nights.
Emma Murphy and Fiona Marian performed as Annie. Mr. Warbucks was performed by Beth O’Sullivan and Caitlín Murray. Beth McDonagh and Maeve Mullane performed as Ms. Hannigan. Many thanks to Ms. Higgins and Ms. Mullins (Producers), Ms. McAuliffe (Musical Director), Ms. Barton and her TY team (Set design), Paula Russell (Lighting), Siobhan O’Riordán and Rachel Kelleher (Sound), and all members of the orchestra for their hard work and dedication.
