This year, Panther Creek Theatre Arts presents the 2019 spring musical: Annie! The story of an orphan named Annie who gets taken in by a multi millionaire, Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks in order to improve his image. Despite obstacles along the way, like fending off murders and a evil Ms. Hannigan, Annie gets the family she always wanted.
Diane Caffrey who plays Annie said “I’ve been doing this since freshman year and I just really love performing.” Izzy Oyler (AKA Lily St Regis) took part in the musical this year because she “[wants] to do musical theatre professionally and it’s what [she loves] to do.” When asked what the final dress rehearsal is like, CJ Craig (who portrays Rooster Hannigan) told PCNN “We treat dress rehearsal as a show we go backstage to the greenroom and get ready.” Panther Creek’s production is different from other productions because “We have a teacher on stage with us as Roosevelt… and it’s a bit more cartoony,” said Soraiah Williams who will be playing the infamous Ms. Hannigan.
To the entire cast and crew, break a leg! We all look forward to seeing you Hard Knock Life at the show on Thursday the 7th.
