Auditions for Annie the Musical!

The sun will come out, tomorrow! In NYC--- You're never fully dressed without a smile!

These are just a few of the wonderful songs from the hit musical, Annie.

This week, I shared with our Westgate students that my wife and I will be performing in a production of Annie this summer. I will be Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks, and my wife will be Grace. We will once again be performing with Overshadowed Theatrical Productions, in Elk Grove Village. I also shared audition information with students who would be interested in trying out for the role of Annie, or any of the other characters in the show. Auditions for girls will be next Monday and Tuesday, May 6 & 7. The  information I shared is listed below, and will also be in the friday packet information at the end of the week. Please feel free to contact me (gberger@sd25.org), or go to the Overshadowed website for full audition information. Their website is www.overshadowedproductions.com
