2/16-18 - The Blue Light Players are proud to present Annie!
This classic musical, inspired by the popular comic strip character, Little Orphan Annie, is set in the Depression era of the 1930's. Annie (Katie Schupbach), an orphan living in Miss Hannigan's (Jean Burk) orphanage, finds herself living in the lap of luxury with billionaire tycoon, Oliver Warbucks (Mike Stewart). Unlike most of the other children at the orphanage, spunky Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real mom and dad instead, and he agrees.
Assisted by his lovely secretary, Grace (Kathryn Mulcahy), Warbucks offers a very large reward for anyone who can prove they are Annie's parents. The reward attracts the attention of con artists Rooster (Dale Williams), Lily (Caitlyn Christenson) and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and take the $50,000 reward. However, there is nothing to fear, this family-friendly musical has a happy ending for Annie, Daddy Warbucks and the whole gang; including Annie's loveable dog, Sandy (Poppy).
