After being the first musical to hit our stage in 1989, it seemed only appropriate to celebrate SJCT’s 25th Anniversary season with the ever-loving Annie!

Director Susan Williams has cast more than 30 islanders in this play based on the comic strip character, Little Orphan Annie (played by 9-year-old ElseDora Arendt). Her story unfolds in 1933 New York City during the Great Depression where the young optimistic orphan lives in a dreary orphanage in the tenement section of N.Y.C. Then there’s the despicable Miss Hannigan, sweet secretary Grace and millionaire Daddy Warbucks, orphans, and the beloved music, including Tomorrow, You’re never Fully Dressed Without a Smile and It’s a Hard Knock Life.

Susan says while the story and some of the costumes (including Annie’s dress) will be the same as presented in 1989, the scenery will be very different and the orchestra will be much larger. But there will also be islanders who were involved in the play originally, including Susan (who played Grace in 1989) and Costume Designer Anita Welch (who played Lilly St. Regis). “I thought it would be really fun to go back to where we started,” said Susan.
