Annie the Musical is coming to the stage at Potosi High School!


Get ready, Annie the Musical is coming! Apr. 11-13 at 7 pm and Apr. 14 at 3 pm in the PHS gymnasium.

Annie the Musical is being directed by, PHS teacher, Mr. Dement. Annie, played by junior Jaidlynn Gains, is the story of a young girl who lives in an orphanage run by Mrs. Hannigan, played by senior Alexis Jarvis. Annie finds herself in the care of Warbucks, played by senior Odie Jackson. Annie has many musical numbers, but two favorites of the cast are NYC and Easy Street. 

Mr Dement said this about Gains: “It’s been different for her going from Sally and Ted who are very active roles in the sense of they were always up to shenanigans and doing crazy stuff and Annie is kinda watching everyone. So it’s been a different take for her… she’s a very hard worker, she’s very excited, I’m very excited to see her do this role… she’s worked very hard and earned her role.”

Gains, the lead, has been working incredibly hard to become Annie. She said, “Annie has always been one of my favorite movies as a kid, and seeing all the kids in the movie sparked that imagination for me… it’s a huge opportunity to have.”

The week of the shows there may be a spirit week. Look forward to supporting the cast and crew of Annie the Musical!
