Pre-“Annie”

For the cast members in the musical Annie, this is a big week. After the cast list was put up revealing who would be in the show in January, cast members have been working hard for months. The show will be on Apr. 14 and 15 at 7 p.m. and Apr. 16 at 2:00 p.m. in the auditorium. The show will include a fun-filled time of amazing acting and great singing throughout the recreation of the musical Annie.

Everyone is dying to see what the cast will put on this year, and all are excited to see the show this weekend. As for the cast members, the nerves and excitement are present since they only have a couple more days to perfect the show.

Hannah Metzler, who is playing the role of the orphan Kate, said, “I am really excited because we have been working on the show for a couple of months, so it is really excited to unveil it for everyone. I am also really excited for everyone to see our fresh new face, miss Chloe Schneiders.” Hannah has been involved in many shows during her career at CFHS and continues to pour her talent and heart into her acting.

As for Chloe Schneiders, this is her first musical. Chloe’s role this weekend in the musical is the lead, Annie. Chloe said, “I am excited to be a part of my first musical with such a great cast. I have learned so much and I cannot wait to show everyone what I can do and how far I have come.” Chloe recently started her acting career in the One Acts play festival a couple months ago.

As for some of the other cast members, this is their last show at Cuyahoga Falls. This bittersweet feeling has been catching up with senior Sam Wilson. Sam is playing the part of Oliver Warbucks. While talking to Sam, he said, “It feels surreal that my high school acting career is coming to an end this week, but I couldn’t ask for a better cast and crew to share it with.”

Sam is just one of the many seniors performing in this play that are sad to be leaving, but happy to share their last performance with each other. Another senior in the show, Abi Kubasek, is playing the role of Grace Farrell. Abi would like everyone to know that she is endlessly proud of her cast and crew for all of their hard work from beginning to end. She is excited and hopeful that all of their work will pay off this weekend. Not only are the cast and crew excited this week, but the whole high school is also roaring with excitement for Annie to hit the stage Friday night!
