    Everyone's favorite redhead returns for the holidays! "Annie" is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Roosevelt, and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks.

    Annie is directed by Dave Landis. Danielle Chaum returns to share the title role with Megan Cheng, who is making her Playhouse debut. Resident Company Members Carla McDonald and Irene Crist reprise the role of Miss Hannigan. Company Member Claire Kolheim and Associate Company Members Colin Morgan and Emily Draffen are also featured.
