Annie JR Rehearsals Begin and Tickets Are On Sale

During the week of September 19, the Somethin’ Doin’ and Spot On students auditioned and were cast in our upcoming production of Annie JR. Congratulations to those students for their hard work and enthusiasm!

Rehearsals began immediately, and we are already hard at work putting our show together. The students sound fantastic, and are working hard to memorize their lines and learn their choreography in time for our first run through of Act I on October 21 from 10am-12pm.

Tickets for Annie JR have gone on sale to the general public! To purchase yours please click the button at left. We encourage you to buy them soon, as shows will sell out with this classic, popular family musical.


As parents, you have the pleasure of watching your child join DAC, make new friends and experience the excitement of being on stage.  If you would like to join the fun, you may sign up to volunteer to work the front of the house or backstage during Annie JR.

Sign up sheets are  available on the bulletin board by the studio where classes are held, or you may sign up by emailing Emily or calling 970-259-2606 EXT 32.

“The DAC Applause! theatre program for kids has had a profound influence on the youth of our community.”
