30th & 31st Sat & Sun Willard High School Theatre Department present “Annie”

With over seventy-five people in the cast, crew, and live orchestra, this production of Annie includes a wide range of performers from elementary kids as young as five adult musicians.  In this family-friendly, musical set in the 1930s, a spunky, ever-positive orphan girl resolves to find her parents, having been abandoned by them as a baby eleven years earlier on the doorstep of a city orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan.  Annie’s adventure takes her through the New York streets, where she finds a lovable dog; to Hooverville, where she meets some of the city’s disgruntled, homeless residents; to the White House, where she inspires President Franklin Roosevelt; and to the mansion of billionaire Oliver Warbucks-all of whom succumb to Annie’s Charms
