The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow, we hope.  But it definitely will be coming out when Van Wert Civic Theatre presents Annie Jr. on the Niswonger Performing Arts Center stage on January 21 at 7:30 PM and January 22 at 2 PM.  This show, presented in collaboration with Van Wert Live, is suitable for all ages and will provide a Broadway experience at an affordable price.  

Over 50 Van Wert area youth under the direction of Doug Grooms bring a one-hour version of this musical to life.  Emily Foudy as Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan.  Annie foils the evil schemes of Tess Vonderwell as Miss Hannigan, Katelyn Knepper as Lily St. Regis, and Dante’ Lippi as Rooster to begin her life in a new home and family with billionaire Oliver Warbucks and his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, portrayed by Evan Falk and Rachael Ryan.
