January 11 - January 20, 2013
Open Door Theater’s production of “Annie” will run January 11-January 20th at the Dragonfly Theater at RJ Grey Junior High, 16 Charter Road, Acton, MA (*performances may run through January 27th depending on snow delays). One performance will feature a live ASL interpretation (Sunday, Jan. 13th at 2:00 pm), and one performance will be an Autism-friendly show for adults and children with autism spectrum disorders and their families or caregivers (Saturday, January 19 at 12:00 pm).
“Annie” is the story of a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her 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 Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy. [Please note that the role of "Sandy" (Annie's dog), will be played by a live dog in the show.] “Annie” is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
