The Salem Summer Theater program performed their rendition of “Little Orphan Annie” July 19 at the Salem High School auditorium.  The play consisted of over 40 kids ranging from second graders through eight graders who not only were acting but beautifully singing as they brought their audience on a journey to a New York Orphanage in the 40s.  The main character, Annie, played by 12 year old Lil Medeiros, was captivating throughout out the performance as she sang and danced just as the original red headed character.  Judging by her vocals one wouldn’t have guessed that she hadn’t had any prior singing experience.  All who attended seemed very entertained as they laughed and applauded throughout the show.
