2013 8th Grade Musical

2013 St. Ann 8th Grade Musical

Shiver me timbers! St. Ann’s 8th grade class (with a few 7th graders, too) put on “Capt. Bree and Her Lady Pirates” on Feb. 7-9 to sold out crowds! High jinx on the high seas is what happened when Capt. Bree and her lady pirates captured the sailing vessel, the Kayla May, filled not with treasures, but with crazy crew members, prisoners, high society passengers and a captain not sure of who is running the ship. The pirates ransom off the captives to the British fleet for gold, and while waiting for a response to their ransom note, they entertain themselves by teaching one of the captives how to be a pirate, and threatening the others with walking the plank. Swordfights, singing and dancing kept this musical hoppin’ for three fun nights of entertainment!

Don’t Say No To The USO

This year’s spring musical “Don’t Say NO to the USO” at St. Ann Catholic School was another huge success. The musical was performed by the 8th grade class along with some 7th graders to help round out the cast. The students began rehearsals the week after Thanksgiving and performed the play the first weekend in March. This is also the 70th anniversry of the USO, so the students donated a portion of the play proceeds to the USO organization.

The play was directed and choreographed by Mrs. Chris Hudson, our school secretary, and Mrs. Jane Kayser, a former St. Ann teacher.

Mr. Al Fischer, our music teacher, was a huge help in teaching the students all the music.

Below is a video remix of photos taken during the March 5th performance.
