Cabrillo Music Theatre proudly announces its brand-new production of the hit musical, ANNIE, which marks the return of Sally Struthers to the Cabrillo stage. ANNIE will run October 14 - 23 at the 1,800-seat Kavli Theatre at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.
ANNIE boasts a Tony Award-winning score by composer Charles Strouse and lyricist Martin Charnin, and a book by Thomas Meehan. The original Broadway production ran for 2,377 performances, and spawned a sequel, two movies, and a Broadway revival. Cabrillo’s production of ANNIE precedes yet another Broadway return, scheduled for 2012.
It’s Depression-era New York City, and a young orphan named Annie, armed only with a heart full of optimism and a stray dog named Sandy, begins a search for the family she never had. Her journey leads her to an equally lonely billionaire named Oliver Warbucks, a magical tour of New York City at night, and finally to the White House.
ANNIE will be directed by Cabrillo Music Theatre’s Artistic Director, Lewis Wilkenfeld. Ilana Eden serves as Music Director and conducts the Cabrillo Music Theatre Orchestra, while Heather Castillo provides the Choreography. Joining Sally Struthers in the cast are theatre veterans Norman Large (Oliver Warbucks) and Dink O’Neal (Rooster Hannigan), while Quinn Martin of Thousand Oaks plays Annie.
Cabrillo Music Theatre also continues its Monday Night Concert Series of fundraisers by presenting an evening with Sally Struthers: Off Script, and Off The Record. This event, held in the intimate and elegant Founders’ Room of the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, will feature a lifetime of stories, told as only Sally Struthers can, followed by a question-and-answer session and a post-performance reception. Sally Struthers: Off Script, and Off The Record will take place one night only, Monday, October 17th, at 7:00PM.
