Based on Little Orphan Annie, the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide sensation. Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the beloved show features a wonderful score written by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, including the Broadway smash hit, 'Tomorrow'.

 

With a perfect combination of street-smarts and optimism, Annie warms the hearts of the audience as we witness her rise from next to nothing in New York City. She is determined to find her parents, who left her at the orphanage years ago. Though things don’t quite work out the way she has planned, she does manage to thwart the plans of the evil Miss Hannigan and find a new family with billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his secretary Grace Farrell, and her lovable pooch, Sandy.

This production was in association with READING OPERATIC SOCIETY

NODA REVIEW

"Staging was cleverly worked with excellent blocking and groupings. Even when space was confined he had managed to ensure all actors could be seen with no upstaging; all of which culminated in creating a fast paced captivating and engaging piece of theatre."
