After three sold out performances, the curtain has closed on Annie.  However, the work continues as it takes day to completely tear down the set.

“Cleaning up after a show is a relief because all the responsibility that was piling up is gone,” assistant stage manager Megan Hamilton said. “It’s also sad because I have worked so hard on it and put in so many extra hours on it.”

Students have to take apart the big intricate set that was The Warbucks Mansion, organize and put away the many props used, and clean and return all the costumes.

“I think it is a necessary part of every production,” senior Rebecca Bradley said. “Just cleaning up after ourselves.”

The theatre department has volunteers that assist with the tear down, making it a much easier process for everyone.

“I am so thankful for all the people that come up and help,” Bradley said. “Without them this whole thing would be impossible.”

Even with the time-consuming chore of cleaning up, students still feel blessed to have been involved with the production.

“The show was a blast,” chorus member Chrissy MacQuilkan said. “It was a lot of pressure, but I made a lot of new friends and grew as an actor and a person.”
