Andover teen scores lead role again at Children’s Theatre
An Andover teen has traded in her orphan status for a seafaring pirate adventure. On stage, that is.
Megan Fischer, 14, who played the lead role in “Annie” at Children’s Theatre Company of Minneapolis last year has once again been cast as a lead, this time, in CTC’s upcoming world premiere of the musical “Buccaneers.”
CTC commissioned playwright Liz Duffy Adams to write the original, swashbuckling story with music by composer Ellen Maddow. Adams’ work has played at top regional theaters across the country.
Megan, who received high praise for her role in “Annie,” this time around plays Enid Arabella. Enid is a smart, 10-year-old, head-strong, take-charge-kind-of girl with a creative flair, who imagines herself playing with pirates. See more in Elyse Kaner’s exclusive ABC Newspapers story.
