SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The sun will be shining for four performances of the Broadway-inspired, Tony Award-winning musical, "Annie Jr." at Spotswood High School on April 27, 28 and 29. Helmetta mayor, Chris Slavicek will be directing the annual spring production by the Appleby School Drama Club. The drama club features fifth graders from Spotswood's Appleby Elementary School.

Fifth grader Savannah Rosario will be taking on the title roll of the plucky, red-headed orphan that steals hearts and inspires optimism. "Annie" first premiered on Broadway in 1977 and became an instant hit. "Annie Jr." was adapted from the original Broadway book and score.

Fellow fifth grader Tyler Quesnel will be portraying everyone's favorite businessman, Daddy Warbucks while Cyanne Chan is cast as the not-so-nice orphanage matron, Miss Hannigan. Camryn Snyder will be playing Grace Farrell, Warbucks' ever-faithful and sweet personal assistant. Tank Engstrom will be making his stage debut as Sandy, Annie's adorable dog. The rest of the cast is rounded out by a group of extremely spirited, talented, versatile and hard-working fifth graders. Auditions for the production took place in December and the entire cast has been rehearsing since school resumed after winter break.
