With well known tunes like “It’s a Hard Knock Life,” “Tomorrow” and “Easy Street”, audience members may find themselves humming along with the cast.

Cast members include adults and kids- some as young as 5-years-old.

Because there were so many talented girls that auditioned, the director decided to have two casts-meaning that some of the young female actresses take turns playing different orphans on alternating days.

Jack Swanson plays the role of Daddy Warbucks and says that the level of talent in this show is impressive.

“They (the kids) are incredible,” Swanson said. “It’s a really fun play and they’ll get tons of laughs and I think people will be very happy that they came.”

For many members of the cast, this show is a family affair. Swanson’s 7-year-old daughter plays Molly- the youngest orphan- and says that she has enjoyed spending time with her dad while rehearsing for the play.

“It’s really, really fun,” said Anna. “Daddy doesn’t usually go in plays a lot- I do.  But, it’s fun to be in a play with him.”

12-year-old Micki Wallace is one of the two young actresses who plays Annie and she says she hopes that audiences will take home one of the messages from the play. One that she sings about in the song “Tomorrow.”

“Optimism-that the message. Always be positive- even when life is trying to pull you down,” said Wallace.

Performances run Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at 7:30pm and there will be matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2:00pm.
