You can bet your bottom dollar that this year’s St Patrick’s and St Gregory’s school musical will be a treat not a trick.

Nearly 100 students from the colleges will perform one of the world’s best-loved musicals, Annie, later this week.

Based on the "Little Orphan Annie" comic strip, the musical tells the story of Annie, who lives a difficult life at Ms. Hannigans’s orphanage.

Annie’s fortune changes and audiences are taken along through her adventures.

St Patrick’s College principal Sue Lennox said the musical would be a delightful theatrical experience for the entire family and the community.

The script will remain the same but the production team has experimented with visual effects and the set and costumes will add a twist to this classic production.

This year the assistant director was a student from St Patrick’s College.

Performances are on Friday, 17 June at 7.30pm and Saturday, 18 June at 2.00pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are $15 each for adults, $10 for students and concession card holders or $40 for a family of four. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The musical will be performed at Mary Shiel Centre, St Patrick’s College for Girls, 4 St Johns Road, Campbelltown.
