The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow… In Annisquam.
You can bet your bottom dollar that this summer there’ll be fun. ANNIE is set in the
era of the Great Depression, which bears unfortunate but timely similarities to present
day events. But the show is far from depressing — it offers upbeat music and a fast-paced, humorous script with many zany characters.
There are numerous opportunities for children. There’s Annie and the girls from the orphanage,
the rapscallion boys of the hobo village, the “NYC” chorus including both boys and girls, and even as Sandy, the dog.
ANNIE has some of the best adult roles of the Broadway stage, starting with Miss Hannigan,
the mistress of the orphanage who everybody loves to hate, and whose song “Little Girls” is a
guaranteed scene-stealer. Miss Hannigan, her brother Rooster and his girlfriend Lily St. Regis,
soft-shoe to one of the best songs of the musical stage, “Easy Street.” And of course there is
bald Daddy Warbucks and his beautiful confident Grace Farrell. Politicians abound, starting
with FDR and members of his Cabinet. At the other end of the spectrum is the hobo village, replete with both savory and unsavory characters; there are the lovely Boylan Sisters, who croon a tune in long, slinky gowns, and the starlet who sings her way to fame in “NYC.”
