Annie was a special surprise. I was expecting to see the story I've always known and have quite frankly become a bit bored with. Instead, I saw a very fresh, engaging and charming take on Annie. The cast was teriffic and so talented. And it was hard to remember that we were watching high school kids performing. Really a wonderful treat!
Quotes & Highlights
The Glendale Humane Society and other local animal rescue groups will participate in and receive donations from the proceeds of this event.
Born in the roaring twenties and abandoned in the great depression, Little Orphan Annie and her homeless canine sidekick, Sandy, were a symbol of hope to a generation of disillusioned and downtrodden Americans. The little redhead who refused to give up her search for loving parents and the scruffy mutt whom she saved from slaughter in the nick of time are as relevant today as they were in the 1930s. Southern California is home to thousands of orphan children and animals; this production will celebrate and support the most needy among them. Glendale Humane Society and other local animal rescue groups will participate in and receive donations from the proceeds of this event.
The performers will be joined onstage by a group of homeless dogs … residents from Los Angeles animal rescue centers who will be available for adoption. This humane effort has been organized by Young Artists for Animals, a new initiative to foster compassion for all animals through artistic expression, supported by The Hollywood Office of The Humane Society of the United States.
