Annie is a classic family musical based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie. It takes place during the great depression in New York City. The spunky 11 year old Annie, is the voice of hope for her fellow orphans who live under the supervision of drunken floozy Miss Hannigan. Her life takes a turn when Grace Farrell, personal secretary to conservative politician and millionaire Oliver Warbucks, pays a visit looking for an orphan to improve his image by staying in their home for a week.
With a perfect combination of street-smarts and optimism, Annie warms the hearts of the audience as we witness her rise from next-to-nothing in New York City. She is determined to find her parents, who left her at the orphanage years ago. Though things don’t quite work out the way she has planned, she does manage to thwart the plans of the evil Miss Hannigan and find a new family with billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his secretary Grace Farrell, and her lovable pooch, Sandy.
The show celebrates Methow Valley Theater’s 40th anniversary of presenting homegrown community theater at the Methow Valley Community Center. The center is enjoying its new sound-enhancing acoustic panels in the gym, and so is MV Theater. Also, thanks to Winthrop Kiwanis generous donation, the Theater is excited to use recently-purchased headsets to help project and control the vocals. And, thanks to the Community Foundation of North Central Washington’s Methow Valley Fund, we are looking forward to having a great deal of fun with our new spotlight.
With a cast of over 50 people, half of whom are orphans, plus award-winning music and unforgettable characters, the show has something for everyone. Please visit www.methowvalleytheater.org or call 509-997-2098 for more information.
