Northland Players: Summer Youth Theater: “Annie Jr.”, Friday-Saturday 7:30 PM, Sunday 2 PM

Join us at the Opera House for our annual tradition of community theater, featuring an all-kid cast directed by the Northland Players! 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 Jr. features everyone’s favorite little redhead in her very first adventure. This is a 60-minute version of the Broadway hit musical.

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.
