Annie musical preview at Koorooman House

GRACE Farmer, who plays the title role of Annie in Leongatha Lyric Theatre’s upcoming musical, and the cast of orphans entertained the residents of Koorooman House in Leongatha on Sunday.
The audience was thrilled by the performance and the opportunity to see some of the show live. This is the first time the younger members of the cast have performed in front of a real audience.
Grace and the orphans performed four songs from the musical including, It’s a Hard Knock Life, Maybe, I Don’t Need Anything But You, and Never Fully Dressed.
Tim Gesell, who plays the role of Oliver Warbucks, the American billionaire who adopts Annie, joined the orphans and sang I Don’t Need Anything But You with Grace.
The canine star of the show Sandy also joined in the performance and proved a big hit with residents, stealing the show with her wagging tail and smiling face.
Josie, a resident, thanked the group at the end of the performance and said they were good enough to sing at La Scala, a famous opera house in Milan, Italy. High praise indeed!
Annie opens in less than five weeks and tickets are selling fast, so be sure not to miss out. Go to www.lyrictheatre.com or trybooking.com
