Annie  
Olney Theatre Center Annie
 
From the director of last year's hit holiday musical, Mary Poppins, the sun will come out brightly during the holidays. Annie has been the gateway for millions of kids to develop a love of live theatre, with this 40th Anniversary production, a new generation gets its shot. It's the middle of the Great Depression in New York City, and hard-knocks abound, especially for Annie and her friends at the orphanage run by Miss Hannigan. But when billionaire-celebrity Oliver Warbucks requires the presence of an orphan to soften his image, Annie unexpectedly finds a way into his heart. Along the way, Warbucks attempts to help Annie find her lost parents, prompting Miss Hannigan to concoct a scheme intended to get her hands on Annie and Warbucks' cash. Featuring Patricia Hurley (Mary Poppins), Kevin McAllister (Ford Theatre's Ragtime), Rachel Zampelli (Evita), and Wilson Jermaine Heredia (Rent - Tony Award Winner).

Once upon a time there was an evil witch. And like most evil witches she did evil things. This witch took away wonderfully creative things in the world like music, dance, and art.

Guess what is in the dark blue cave? You guessed it... the Witch and her Magical Orb.
