The Sun'll Come Out . . . Tomorrow!

Actually, the sun has already come out and set on J's final production of Annie, jr. It was the conclusion to his TROUPE Summer Camp. This is the 5th week we were working on Annie. They had practices from 1:00 to 5:30 five days a week and then production times.

Everyone seemed sad to be letting go of Annie. The kids were very enthusiastic about their parts. In the green room, they couldn't help singing the songs at intermission and after the show. And we aren't just talking little girls here----We had high school kids and 7 year olds, and everything in between
Lots of people complimented me on J's performance of Rooster Hannigan---Miss Hannigan's brother, the one who tries to claim he is Annie's father and collect a $50,000 reward from Daddy Warbucks.

Here are my photos! remember---they have to be taken without a flash, and so far back, well, they're pretty blurry.
Our Annie, singing "Maybe."
Annie and Miss Hannigan
The girl who played Miss Hannigan was really impressive. :-)

Here are some Hoovervillians---the song: "We'd Like to Thank You Herbert Hoover"
J is in the background in his first appearance in the show.

Same song, different verse.

Miss Hannigan sings "Little Girls"
J was thinking of trying out for Miss Hannigan's role, but it was a no-go. ;-)
This song is really funny.

Someday, I'll land in the nuthouse, with all the nuts and the squirrels!


Annie gets to go to Mr. Warbucks's house. The staff welcomes her, and she thinks she's going to like it there.

This is the Star to Be---arrived in NYC with "3 bucks, 2 bags, and one me."

J sings "his song," Easy Street.
"Mother Dear, we know you're . . . down there listenin' "
Easy Street----where the rich folks are playin'
This is J and his sidekick, Lilly St.Regis.

Intermission---Backstage
The Boylyn Sisters
You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile

The orphans listen to the radio and sing.
Trying out their disguise on Miss Hannigan.
The fake Mudges, Mr. Warbucks, Annie, and Grace
I really enjoyed the guy playing Warbucks and the girl playing Grace. I hope they'll stick with TROUPE. When J first met the guy, he said, "Mom, I met someone who's just as weird as me."
What a compliment!
"Made to the order of . . . The Jig is Up????"
"Tomorrow!"
J is behind the girl in the green dress. :-)
