The Ross Lower School Community Theater Group presented scenes and songs from the musicals Oliver! and Annie on June 8. Directed by Lower School theater teacher Margaret Kestler, the production combined two iconic characters of classic fiction, Annie from the original comic strip, and Charles Dickens’s Oliver Twist. The performance included students from both Ross and the community.
The show intertwined the stories of Oliver and Annie, two children who have no parents to protect and provide for them. The talented cast portrayed characters who have in common the ability to find within themselves the courage to face the misery of their existence with optimism, faith, and hope.
