NDA Playmakers Present Annie!

Over the past three months, students have been working tirelessly to present three performances of the classic Annie. Whether it be choreography, blocking, painting or singing, every student has dedicated countless hours in preparation for the show. The performances are dedicated to Mr. Stephen Flynn, the Academy’s drama director who passed away unexpectedly in October.

Based on the popular comic strip, Annie tells the extraordinary story of a little orphan who ends up in the lap of luxury with Depression-era billionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks. Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan's orphanage, spunky Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real mom and dad instead, and he agrees. Warbucks' whopping reward for Annie's parents attracts the attention of con artists Rooster, Lily and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and take the $50,000 reward. But don't fret: This classic family musical has a happy ending for Annie, Daddy Warbucks and the whole gang. The show will be full of fun and magical, featuring musical hits such as “It’s the Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow.”

  • Sunday, December 11 - 2 PM
