Approximately 60 Our Lady of Peace School students will take the stage as cast members in the school’s production of “Annie Jr.” May 10 and 11, at Clarks Summit Elementary School, Grove Street.


Michael O’Malley, Our Lady of Peace School music teacher described the storyline: “Annie is an orphan in New York City and she is waiting for her parents to come back to get her at the orphanage.


She runs away from the orphanage because of how mean Miss Hannigan is to all of the orphans.”


Miss Hannigan will be played by eighth grade student, Mary Graff, who said, “The casting is really well done and everyone fits their roles they’re portraying as singers, actors and dancers. It’s really great to see everybody in the cast work together to make something as special as this production.”


Elisa Yanni, sixth grade, will portray an orphan who acts mean.


“I’m mad my parents left me,” said Yanni.


O’Malley who began working at the second in September 2012, said, “I’m looking forward to everyone doing a great job. They (the actors) are really good in their roles and what they do.”


The actors at the Clarks Green school have been rehearsing since January when auditions were held for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.


Shea Quinn, 7th grade, said the cast has been working to portray their roles.


“…No one really has a bad attitude about whether they have a big or small part and they all contribute…They’ve been working really, really hard and I can’t wait to see it. Acting and working with everyone as a big team is fun…”


Carole Orr, a faculty member is assisting with the play with help from Angela DeLayo and Peggy Yanul.


Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and O’Malley said proceeds will be used to start a fund to continue the music and theater programs at the school.


Showtime is 7 p.m. For more information, call 570.587.4152.
