People are losing their jobs. Banks are seizing people's homes. An unpopular president is on his way out.
The world of Annie, set in Depression-era New York City, doesn't feel so far away these days. Maybe a heartfelt rendition of Tomorrow is just what everybody needs.
River Ridge Middle and High School drama departments will oblige with four performances of Annie this weekend. The iconic orphan will be played by sixth-grader Abigail Taylor, an Equity actress recently featured in the Broadway Touring Company of Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby.
The show also features Nick Boucher as Daddy Warbucks, Julianna Kauffman as Miss Hannigan and Erin Botz as Grace Ferrell.
