Video: Lynn Andrews comes home and sings like an (East) Angel

2004 Denver East High School graduate Lynn Andrews has returned home to play Miss Hannigan in the national touring production of Annie through May 10 at the Buell Theatre.

Lynn AndrewsOn Friday, Andrews paid a visit to her alma mater, stopping by former choir teacher William Taylor and retiring theatre teacher Melody Duggan’s classes. Andrews answered questions and sang for the students – and the choir returned the favor. “In 23 years of doing shows, this was the one,” Duggan said of Andrews.

Andrews believes she would not be playing Miss Hannigan today without the encouragement and discipline she got from Taylor and Duggan at Denver East High School. “Everything I am doing now, they pretty much taught me,” she says.

Adds Taylor of the impact Andrews’ visit might have on his current students: ” I hope it opens up the sky to them.”
