It looks familiar now... Probably about a year ago.

Now this is an Annie worthy of the role. Finally an Annie who can sing. No offense when you see Annie live if the Annie can't belt it's disappointing no matter how cute they are or good they act. How did Charnin let this one get out of his fingers...

I responded a few pages ago when someone else posted these clips. I think this Annie is the next best after Andrea. Her voice is just so crystal clear and crisp and has spunk (like Andrea's). She's very natural and unaffected... no over the top hand gestures or expressions. When she sings "maybe" it is pure and simple, her expressions are just simply longing and hopeful.. and that is the best kind of Annie in my opinion. This was a production in NJ; I wonder if she ever auditioned for Broadway/the tour. She should have been a Broadway Annie. I think she is much much much better than any of the Annies since the Broadway years that is for certain. I really like the whole look and feel of this production - very very reminiscent of the original cast.

I asked the director, Richard Sabellico, about her and he couldn't remember much except that he cast her a few months later as Bet in a production of "Oliver."

This show was done by Red Oak Music Theatre and was performed at the Strand Theatre in NJ. I had done a few shows as a kid with them. They did Annie about 8 years before this production and I was cast as I believe a 15th orphan but ended up turning it down to play Annie somewhere else. At the first production, my friend at the time: Jennifer Mccomb was Annie. When they did this show 8 years later it was amazing. They only used 7 orphans and had replica sets and identical customs. I remember nobody would go with me so I went by myself! The Producer knew me so I got 3rd row tickets. I was shocked at how professional the show was and couldn't believe the incredible talent. My friend played Lily as well. I do remember reading that the kid playing Annie (I believe her name was Becky) had just done the Sound of Music with Red Oak as well.

I kept thinking the entire cast was "broadway material." From what I read, it was mostly local NJ kids. Very talented ones at that!!!

I don't recognize the Annies' names in Debbie's post, which means I probably didn't see this production or the one several years before it, which is surprising, since in the years 1983-90 I thought I went to see just about every New Jersey production of Annie there was. I know I didn't see it before October 26, 1990, which was my 100th performance, and at that time I published a list in "Annie People" of all of those productions I saw and their dates and their Annies.

P.S. Are you Spring Lake/Dream Makers Debbie?
