This past week the CHHS theatre department showcased yet another astounding production directed by Miss Jacquie Devino. This year’s musical was Annie. The play followed almost the exact plot as the movie with a few extra musical numbers to display our students’ vocal talents.

Ashley Jefferies, Destiny Moyer, Chris Song

While most of the annual musicals in the past featured kids involved with the theatre department, this year many choir kids with little to no past theatre experience starred in the show. I have to say, I was shocked at how acting came so naturally to these students. One actor in particular- Chris Song (Oliver Warbucks), displayed such talent.

Main character Annie (Destiny Moyer) displayed an incredible amount of talent within every number performed. Her height- perfect for the the role, should by no means be any indication of the enormously powerful voice she has.

I’d also like to recognize Ashley Jefferies (Grace Farrell) and Gabriella Rae (Miss Hannigan) for their incredible performances and voices. Other actors that deserve some appreciation are Javier Casanova (Rooster), Landry Champlin (Lily & student vocal director), Franklin Roosevelt (Adam Jones), Thad Giberson (Drake), and all ensemble actors including Celeste Gensollen, Regina Zepeda, and Jules Powers.

Special shout out to orchestra director Taylor Goodwin and CHHS band for (in my opinion) playing the biggest role in the entire production. A shout out to the technical crew directed by Mr.Faulks for making everything possible, yet again.

Overall, watching was an amazing experience and if you haven’t seen a musical production by CHHS yet, I highly recommend it.
