"Annie KIDS" Is Coming To Denison, IA, June 12-17, 2017

2017 CMT Production

The popular Broadway musical “Annie” has captivated audiences around the world and now it comes to life during our June workshop.


This summer's Children's Musical Theater workshop production is the popular “Annie KIDS.” This fun-filled week is designed to teach the basics of musical theater to kids in grades K-8 who love singing, dancing and challenges. The workshop runs from June 12 – 16 and concludes with a performance for the public on Saturday, June 17. All events will take place at the high school, 819 North 16th St in Denison. 


Since its meager beginning in 2004, this popular workshop has blossomed under the direction of Allison Rasmussen, a Manilla native and instructional coach at Waverly-Shell Rock Community Schools. This is her eleventh year of volunteering to head this workshop production. She is assisted by a dedicated team which now includes former students. All give a week of their time to help stage the production. 

Even local grandparents have discovered a benefit. They can spend a week of quality time with their grandchildren by inviting them for a visit and enrolling them in the workshop.
