Peotone to learn important lessons:

‘You’re Never Fully Dressed without a Smile’ and ‘The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow.’

Leaping Lizards! Peotone will “stick up its chin and grin and sing ‘Tomorrow!  Tomorrow!’” when Peotone Junior High performs Annie JR., it was announced by Drew Cohen, president of Music Theatre International (MTI). Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning best musical by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie JR. tells the story of a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents.

“Annie is a heartwarming show with an important message about the true nature of family. In the show, we see how a plucky little girl transforms her entire life by making the most out of every moment,” said Cohen. “MTI would like to applaud the students from Peotone Junior High and Peotone Intermediate Center for all their hard work on their production.”

Peotone Junior High School will present Annie JR. on Saturday, March 2, at 7 p.m., plus Sunday, March 3, at 2 p.m., in the Peotone High School auditorium. Tickets, available at the door, are $10 for adults and $5 for students and children ages three and up. There is no dress code, but the cast will remind you that you are “never fully dressed without a smile.”

Annie JR. follows the story of an orphan named Annie living a “hard-knock life” at The New York City Municipal Orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie dreams of being reunited with her parents and takes action to find them. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Roosevelt, and finds a new family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Annie JR. is presented through special arrangement, in addition to all authorized materials supplied, by Music Theatre International, 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY, 212-541-4684, mtishows.com.

MTI works directly with the composers, lyricists, and book writers of these musicals to provide official scripts, musical materials, and dynamic theatrical resources to more than 70,000 professional, community, and school theaters in the U.S. and in more than 60 countries worldwide.
