Bronco Players Stage Spring Musical ‘Annie’

The company performs “Hooverville.”

The Palm Beach Central High School Bronco Players took to the stage for the first time in two years, lighting it up as bright as the sun with the musical Annie.

The student-run show opened to a rousing audience of several hundred, as a cast and crew of 53 put on the musical for near sold-out crowds over four performances held March 10-12.

“It has been a long road and journey to get back to this moment,” Artistic Director Gail Marshall said, adding that Annie was the perfect show for this year. “It has a great theme and lesson of being able to look beyond the troubles of today because tomorrow, being only a day away, can bring us so many possibilities.”

The show included surprise cameos from alumni and faculty, including Principal Darren Edgecomb. Twelve of the students are graduating seniors, including Marshall’s daughter, Amelia Marshall, who played Miss Hannigan.

The cast included Julia Namia, Karina Kopacz, Ida Alvarado, Morgan Ozimek, Charlotte Bullen, Jadyn Yokie, Paige Bass, Amelia Marshall, Angelina Dowling, James Agugliaro, Addison Gammons, Chayse Rivera, Ethan Terrell, Ella Rhodes, Kaliya Crichfield, Francisco Del Valle, Nicholas Garzon, Brea Campbell, Angelica Ramirez, Maria Ramirez, Leonardo Lipson, Skyler Spirn, Valerie Chandler, Lucciano Buzzo, Olivia Lerner, Sean LaFrance, Frankie Ruiz and Connor McAllister.
