Let an adorable cast of orphans steal your heart as Heritage Community Theatre presents Annie! The sun really does come out as this timeless story unfolds anew.
Like the red-headed orphan herself, the musical Annie had many helping hands to bring it to life. Annie finds her genesis in a classic comic strip by Harold Gray. Expanding Annie's world into a book, Thomas Meehan fleshed out the now familiar story. Paired with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin Annie, the musical was born and has been delighting audiences for decades.
Annie a spunky Depression-era orphan, steals the spotlight, but is not alone in her antics. Determined to find her parents, Annie must first escape the clutches of the cruel and embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, finds a new family and home with billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Directed by multi talented, Layne Willden, Annie finds a fresh yet familiar retelling of a classic story. Annie is brought to life by the talented Abby Findlay. Larger than life, Daren Saunders delivers a strong performance as Oliver Warbucks and Marsha Holmes delivers a deliciously delinquent as Miss Hannigan.
