Final preparations being made for ‘Annie’
“Annie,” a uniquely American story about survival, pluck, second chances, generosity and triumph, opens at the historic Sandwich Opera House next week. This Broadway sensation, ripped from the pages of a comic strip, won three Tony Awards: Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book.
“Annie” is a spunky orphan with infectious, unbeatable optimism and moxie. She’s determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage run by the cruel and bitter Miss Hannigan. She does escape, but is caught and returned, only to be selected as the needy child who’d stay at billionaire Daddy Warbucks’ mansion during the holidays. Shenanigans ensue, relationships grow, and even President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Secret Service join the fray.
“Annie” will be performed for a limited five-performance engagement on the Opera House stage March 21 to 24. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7 p.m., with a Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. The theater, a known landmark in DeKalb County, is located at 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich.
