Sunday, January 20, 2pm

at the Costa Mesa High School Performing Arts Center

  • Tech Week: January 14-17 (all cast mandatory): Every day 3:00-7:00pm

The play version of Annie is a bit different from the movie, including several songs, and the Junior version is a bit different from the full play. If you would like you can have your child familiarize him/herself with the junior stage version by watching previous productions on youtube. Here are a few examples.

If you have any questions please send them to and we will reply promptly. If you would like to add your child's email to this distribution list so they are also getting updates, or would like to add a spouse or other parent's email address to this list, please do so here.

We will also be using the Remind app for your mobile device. This is available for parents and students. Download the Remind App Now from the app store of your device. Open the app and select “Join a Class.” The “class code” requested is “anniedav”.

VOLUNTEERS: Last but not least...WE NEED YOU as a parent volunteer. Keep an eye out for requests for volunteer opportunities and get involved! We will need parents to help with costumes, sets, make-up, backstage, etc. The first opportunity is for you to volunteer at an upcoming rehearsal. We need 2 parent volunteers per rehearsal to sign kids in and out, supervise, patrol, send glaring “be quiet” looks, etc. If each parent took one rehearsal slot we would have more than enough! Sign up here.

The cost of participation is $100.00 per student and each cast member will receive a show t-shirt. You can also use the button below to pay:
