Mill Mounain Theatre Sets Children's Play

Mill Mountain Theatre Conservatory will perform “Annie Jr.,” the all-youth production based on the Broadway musical, Dec. 10-20 at Mill Mountain Theatre’s Trinkle Stage.

It will be the first production at MMT since it closed last winter. The theater is not expected to re-open permanently before 2012.

Based on the popular comic strip, “Annie Jr.” tells of a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan.

“Annie, Jr.” is a production of the Conservatory and designed to be an educational experience for all the children involved.

The cast of 20 plus actors are local and regional school-aged children ranging from 6-18 years old. Ginger Poole, Mill Mountain Theatre’s Educational Director, will direct. Susan Braden is musical director.

Mill Mountain Theatre Conservatory is the organization’s educational division. The Theatre’s education programs continue to thrive, offering year-round classes in theatre, dance, technical theatre and musical theatre to ages kindergarten through adult.

The Board of Directors of the Theatre organization is in the process of reinventing its business model and will unveil plans to the public soon.
