Description

Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, with a beloved book and score by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie KIDS features everyone’s favorite little redhead in her very first adventure.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

All students ages 5 to 9 are welcome to join our after-school play production class on Tuesday’s. The class introduces theatre vocabulary and technique through interactive theatre games and scene practice, as well as music and dance taught by professionals. The experience will include a fully realized final production with professionally designed sets, costumes, lights, sound and props. The teachers are highly qualified with many aggregate years experience in Children’s Theatre. Each child is encouraged to fully participate and is considered an integral part in our final production. Please check the production dates below, as we expect every child to be fully present for all performances.

Price includes a script, and downloads of the musical tracks to practice with at home. We provide costumes and props that will live at the theatre and be used in performances. Tickets are sold separately through a link provided by Upstage in the weeks prior to performances. A downloadable video link of the performance is included in tuition.
