Abby as the orphan, Pepper
A cast picture after the last performance after everyone had changed.
In January Abby auditioned for a part in QNEK's summer production of Annie and got the part of an orphan, Pepper.
Now this is our painfully shy 13 year old daughter, Abby. She has a hard time talking to people and is very quiet (except of course at home among her siblings).
Once she is on stage, however, all changes. She is loud, expressive and a wonderful dancer.
Sunday was the last of six nearly sold out performances and although it was a sacrifice in some ways for our family to drive her 45 minutes each way to rehearsals, we all think it was worthwhile. She had nothing but a positive experience working with all the other actors and was able to be a part of an excellent show.
(Now maybe we can all stop humming and singing the songs from Annie - they stick in your head!)
