The popular comic strip heroine Little Orphan Annie takes center stage at the Woodland Opera House in one of the world’s best-loved musicals, “Annie” Jr.

The show opens Friday, Dec. 6, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 22. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are available at 530-666-9617 or www.woodlandoperahouse.org.
Patrons may bring an unwrapped toys to the lobby for a toy drive during “Annie.” Donations are also accepted at the Opera House during business hours 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Opera House is partnering with Women Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence and the DA’s office Multi-Disciplinary Interview Center.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie (Iris Harshaw) charms everyone’s hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in a 1930s New York City orphanage run by the embittered Miss Hannigan (Alexis Velasquez).

With the help of the other girls in the orphanage — Makenna Harding-Davis, Jordan Hayakawa, Marley Michel, Emily Miller, Alex Romero and Natalie Vogt — Annie escapes to the wondrous and magical world of NYC.

In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations and befriends Daddy Warbucks (J. Hunter LaMar), his assistant Grace (Abby Miles) and even President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Luke Crabbe).

The show concludes with a Christmas celebration at the Warbucks’ mansion complete with a visit from all of the orphans and a surprise package for Annie — her precious pup, Sandy! (Tranky)

The show is directed by Angela Baltezore. Choreography is by Eva Sarry and musical direction is by Lori Jarvey.The show is underwritten by Jennifer Goldman, D.D.S., and Amy Tran, D.D.S.
