Annie Kids

June 14-18, June 28-July 2, & July 26-30

This musical is based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Character Breakdown:

The Orphan Ensemble are gritty girls that are neglected and vulnerable, yet basically honest and lovable:
  • Annie - a complex, tough, streetwise urchin who is surprisingly vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: her newfound "family." She is motherly, independent, overwhelmed and hopeful. 
  • Molly - the youngest orphan, age 6.
  • Kate - the next-to-youngest at age 7.
  • Pepper - the toughest, age 12.
  • July - the quiet orphan, age 13.
  • Duffy - the oldest and “in charge,” age 13.
Aggie Hannigan - a definite "has-been." Her distaste for her job should ooze from every line she delivers. 

Rooster Hannigan and Lily St. Regis - the comic team who claim to be Annie's parents but are revealed to be Miss Hannigan's swindling brother (Rooster) and his sleazy girlfriend (Lily) in disguise. These characters play off each other constantly. 

Oliver Warbucks -  the daunting, confident millionaire who made his fortune during World War I as an industrialist. In the beginning, Warbucks is awkwardly affectionate toward Annie and then finds himself completely charmed by her. 

Grace Farrell - Oliver Warbucks's calm, cool and classy secretary. She appears businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and Warbucks, yet maternal toward Annie. Grace is likable, sweet and confident. 

Drake and the Servants - the loyal domestic help of Oliver Warbucks. This group of performers sings with the ensemble and can be double cast as New Yorkers. 

President Franklin D. Roosevelt - helps Oliver Warbucks locate Annie’s parents. 

The New Yorkers - a colorful collection of characters, usually identified by their occupation. Among many roles are the Apple Seller, Lt. Ward, Bundles, Usherette, Star-to-be, Bert Healy. 

The Jungle Book Kids

June 21-25, July 12-16, & August 2-6

Adapted from Disney's beloved animated film and the works of Rudyard Kipling, the “man cub” Mowgli, bounds through the jungle and learns what it means to be human. When banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their journey, they meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin' musical rhythms of the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally their fellow animals into battle and restore peace throughout the jungle.

Character Breakdown:

Baloo - the bear who helps Mowgli survive on their adventures through the jungle. 
 
Kaa - the snake, supplies threat and danger to Mowgli's journey out of the jungle. 
 
Shere Khan - the tiger, is the villainous King of the Jungle. 
 
King Louie - the jazzy King of the Monkeys.
