IMembers and Non Members, ages 8-108, are invited to be a part of the Musical Theater Community Acting Group's production of Annie!

Annie tells the story of a young girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy industrialist, Oliver Warbucks. Annie quickly charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks. Popular songs from this musical include "Tomorrow" and "It's a Hard Knock Life."
