Media are invited to the dress rehearsal: Cameras will be allowed on stage while actors are performing. Student actors will be available for interviews.

The show performances will be the culminating activity for SAISD’s  two-week summer musical theatre camp through which young thespians were introduced to the foundation skills of theater including character development, costume design, set design and stage lighting -- while visual arts students honed their skills through producing posters, merchandise and other items in preparation of show time.

“Annie Jr.” was specially selected to exemplify how learning can be fun and because of its wide-ranging appeal to a variety of student ages and audiences. Admission is free, and the public is invited to enjoy the familiar songs and characters that have become popular with multi-generations.

Students represent: Brackenridge, Burbank, Edison, Jefferson, Highlands and Lanier high schools; Rhodes, Tafolla and Whittier middle schools; Austin, Hawthorne and Irving academies; Young Women’s Leadership Academy and St. Phillip’s Early College High School.
