Along with myself, a number of Newhaven College students and teachers are thrilled to be a part of the Leongatha Lyric Theatre's upcoming performance of the hit Broadway musical 'Annie'.
Music teacher Kerryn Lockhart is the Director and Dan Moldrich, also a music teacher, is the Musical Director. Student performers from Newhaven are Brittany Carlson, Shontelle O’Connor, Grace Farmer (who plays Annie), Chloe Fox and Laura Vivian. Nick Carlson, who is a member of the College Board of Directors is also in the adult ensemble.
We have all been rehearsing hard since February with three weekly rehearsals where we learn, practice and perfect; vocals, choreography and acting. We all agree that it is an extremely fun and enriching experience to be part of such a show.
‘Annie’ is set in the 1930's in New York City during the depression. Hit Broadway songs include, 'Tommorow', 'Hooverville', and 'A New Deal for Christmas '.
There are 13 performances from July 6 – 21 at Mesley Hall, corner Horn & Ogilvy Street, Leongatha.
Tickets for opening night include a light supper after the performance and tickets are available for purchase online or from the Great Southern Saddlery in Leongatha.
Don’t miss out on seeing this wonderful performance! This is a great show for all ages and all of the performers who are involved will appreciate lots of support from the community.
