Annie comes alive on stage at Prospect

| 26/02/2009

(CNS): The Cayman Drama Society has announced that it will be presenting a local production of the much loved classic hit American musical Annie, opening on 12 March until 5 April at the Prospect Playhouse. The performance, which is being produced by Sheree Ebank, will be directed by Dori Stayton and Murali Ram. Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score, the story was written by Thomas Meehan and was based on the orphan Annie comic strips.

Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin are responsible for the music and lyrics in a show that created the timeless classics “Tomorrow”, “It’s A Hard Knock Life”, “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile”, and “A New Deal For Christmas”. 

Annie, who is being played in this production by Isabella Rooney, is a depression-era orphan determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstop of a New York City orphanage.  When opportunity presents itself the famous red-headed young heroine hides inside a laundry bag to make her escape and find the parents that abandoned her where she soon finds Sandy the stray dog she adopts. A tear-jerking feel-good story which, of course, has a happy ending

Tickets cost CI$ 25 and Under 18 CI$15 shows will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:00pm with a matinee performance on Sundays at 3:00pm. Call 949-5054 for more details or log on to
