The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best loved musicals. Annie (Avery Yoss), a spunky Depression-era orphan, is determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan (Daniela Appel).
In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Sam Horowitz), his personal secretary Grace Farrell (Cassidy Kaye) and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Others in the cast include Jessica Aftergut, Zoe Baer, Hailey Baer, Juliette Betzer, Erin Buerlein, Kenzie Clark, Caitlin Fleisher, Megan Genecov, Jennifer Greenspan, Lainey Gutow, Alexis Hamburger, Lilah Harris, Sydney Horowitz, Claudia Hurst, Emma Jacobsen, Carly Kahn, Sophie Kettles, Jordan Levy, Taylor Levy, Haley Lieberman, Bella Pailet, Kyle Prengler, Campbell Scheer, Lily Shane, Soleil Singh, Jared Steinhart, Samantha Ungerman, Anna Wernick and Molly Zimmerman.
With classic songs such as “Maybe,” “Hard-Knock Life,” “Tomorrow” and “Easy Street,” “Annie” is great entertainment for the whole family.
