Morris Park Players' "Annie" at Edison Nov. 19 & 20

Nov 19 guest to be announced. Guests will perform the role of "Judge Brandeis." See cameo biographies below.

Move to Thomas Edison High School

After Folwell Middle School closed its doors due to budget cuts, Morris Park Players (MPP) needed to leave their residence in south Minneapolis after 25 years. The loyal audience of MPP has followed their productions from previous locations of Nokomis Junior High and Roosevelt Senior High for many years prior to that. Thomas Edison High School in northeast Minneapolis has invited and welcomed MPP into their Auditorium and school as their new permanent home.

Edison’s teacher Stacey Kilton will play the role of Sophie, and 12th grade student Taji Robinson, and 9th grade student Skye Horton will perform as part of the adult chorus in this production of Annie.
