Gumley School Production 2016: Annie

Annie is the tonic we all need to remind ourselves that if we live with hope in our hearts, then we will never give up and never be down for long. Little Orphan Annie is an eternal optimist. She first appeared in a comic strip in the New York Daily News in 1924 and went on to have many adventures in which she always triumphed over adversity. With the coming of the Great Depression in 1929, Annie’s resilient spirit and eternal optimism shone like a beacon through the hungry thirties and shines for us today as we face a very uncertain future.

 

Through the ensuing decades, Annie’s story was adapted for radio and film in the 1930s. It came to the Broadway stage as a musical in 1977 and has rarely been out of production since. There have been subsequent television and film adaptations of the musical to the present day.

 

Since coming to Gumley in 2002, ‘Annie’ has been on the girls’ wish list for school production. Its time finally arrived in 2016 and we had a great adventure producing it. As always, this was a whole school endeavour with a diverse multi-disciplinary team that saw the involvement of many teachers and non-teaching staff as well as students from all year groups.

 

The ‘Annie’ company has been together for three months, working away after school and behind the scenes for many hours to bring this show to the stage. Mounting a full scale musical is always a challenge and tests all of us to our limits. We have endured; we have triumphed and we have been made stronger as a result.
