‘Little Orphan Annie’ performances planned
Spotlight Playhouse will present “Little Orphan Annie” at the Haverhill High School auditorium.
Performances are April 19, 20, 26 and 27 at 7 p.m. and April 28 at 3 p.m. Annie, played by Katie Lowell, 11, of Groveland is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan, played by Rina Cerrulli of Melrose.
Annie’s seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy munitions industrialist, Oliver Warbucks, played by Kevin Wilson of North Andover. Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff, including Grace Farrell, played by Meghan Dalton of Beverly, and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks cannot help but learn to love this wonderful girl.
With an additional group of 20 energetic orphan girls and a cast of adults and teens from Haverhill and surrounding towns, the show is directed by Darell Keene of Haverhill. Tickets are $20 and $18 for senior citizens. To purchase tickets, call 978-380-8509 or email email@example.com. Haverhill High School is at 137 Monument St. Visit online at www.spotlightplayhouse.org.
