The next few months are going to prove that the musical “Annie” is ubiquitous (now there’s a word I don’t get to use on the blog every day).
I can’t go to a movie anymore without seeing a preview for the Jamie Foxx/Rose Byrne/Cameron Diaz star turn that hits theaters Dec. 19. And the AT&T Performing Arts Center is staging the musical June 23-July 25.
Sandwiched between those two performances will be Woodrow Wilson High School’s spring musical featuring the little girl and her dog in New York City. “Annie” was just announced as Woodrow’s musical at Monday night’s mini-school, the traditional announcement date for the school’s performing arts program.
Performing arts program chief John Beaird and Woodrow grad Katie Cunningham Anderson will be staff directors of the musical, and as always, a host of current and past Woodrow parent volunteers will handle set construction, feeding the cast and sewing costumes.
Auditions for roles are scheduled for November, and the musical will be staged in April.
