Richmond Hill Community Theatre is presenting Annie Jr. for four performances, March 29, 30 and April 5, 6 at the Waterfront Church, 134 Thunderbird Drive.
The event begins each night at 7 p.m. General admission is $12. Seniors 65 and older, students 14 and under, and military with ID pay $10.
The cast includes over 40 talented youth performers, in what is the Community Theatre’s 29th production.
Directors Kim Diebold, Kelly Loomis, and Varina Moser say they are lucky to work with “such creative young people.” They are proud of each actor’s focus, skills and growth as a performer.
“This show proves that it holds the test of time. Genuine honesty and a positive outlook never lose their relevance, no matter how old you are,” the directors said.
Annie Jr. is based on the comic strip adapted from the Tony-Award winning musical by Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin. Annie Jr. tells the familiar story of an orphan in the Depression-era hoping to find her parents.
Richmond Hill Community Theatre is a 501c3 non-profit organization that performs at various rented venues in Richmond Hill and also offers a small college scholarship, funded through donations collected at every show to qualifying Richmond Hill High School seniors.
