Morgan has recently had a taste of cultural with the performance of Annie. The Morgan Community Theatre sang and danced their way into the hearts of all attendees, this past week.
Though this was a slightly shorter version from the movie or Broadway show, the story and main plot were carried through successfully. Based on the story by Thomas Meehan.
The actors were convincing in the roles they portrayed, and the chemistry between the actors helped to make it a good experience. The cast of Annie was well-selected, even down to the part of Sandy, an obedient, well-trained white dog, named Sophie.
Both the audience and the cast of performers walked away with an optimistic outlook, humming the melody “ The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow”.
The final night of the play, was considered to be a “full house,” by some that attended.
When all the money is counted the director, Adam Slee; the Morgan Community Theater Company and those that attended this performance, can have the satisfaction that they made a difference and they can stick out their chin and grin.
The proceeds will be going to help fund the Morgan School District Special Education Department.
