On Nov. 8 and 9, members of the Kids Coop Theatre will perform the musical “Annie” at the Adams Memorial Opera House in Derry.
MiniMe, a poodle mix owned by Massachusetts residents Bob and Kathleen Sachs, was adopted from the Nevins Farm MSPCA two years ago and will star as Annie’s four-footed friend, Sandy, in the upcoming production.
Ten-year-old Londonderry resident Emily Thomas said she was beyond excited to have earned the starring role.
Rehearsals have been challenging, but fortunately they have been spent among good friends. Many members of the Kids Coop are veteran performers who have starred together in dozens of area productions over the years.
Making her choreographing debut is Megan Reid, a 17-year old junior at Londonderry High School.
Another veteran Kids Coop member, Mackenzie Ozaroff, will play the role of crabby Ms. Hannigan. This show will be Ozaroff’s fifth show with the Kids Coop.
Danielle Kuhl, 15, of Hampstead will portray the character of Lily, a wisecracking villainess, in her debut Kids Coop performance.
“Annie” will be performed Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 9 at 1 and 7 p.m. at the Derry Opera House, 29 West Broadway, Derry, NH. All tickets are $12 and are available at www.kids-coop-theatre.org.
