BIS Abu Dhabi was extremely proud to present the classic musical Annie last week. The show was performed on three nights and on each occasion, the audience left the auditorium in awe of our wonderful cast, musicians and stage crew. It really was a team effort and everybody who took part should be extremely proud of themselves.
Janet Smyth, 8C, played the role of Annie and worked hard for many months creating a role which drew sympathy as well as admiration from the audience. The enthusiastic orphans, anti-heroine Miss Hannigan, the conniving duo, Rooster and Lily, President Roosevelt, billionaire Mr Warbucks and his smitten assistant Grace Farrell are all iconic roles in ‘theatre-land’ and our students not only encapsulated their characters over the course of two hours, they demonstrated their true acting and singing talents, too. The chorus members made every moment of their contributions count as well.
The performances were supported by lighting and sound by Fantazia Events Management and the main hall was transformed into a theatrical spectacle.
Many congratulations to all involved, including the hard-working staff and parents – this experience truly embodied the power of a community spirit at the heart of a school.
