PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Award-winning timeless classic Annie makes the second stop on its brand new tour right here in Philadelphia at the Kimmel Cultural Campus’ Miller Theater.
The cast and of course Sandy are here all week. They carry the message Annie is famous for: there will always be a better tomorrow.
“I think right now Annie is a show that conveys such a message of hope and such a message of optimism,” says Julie Nicole Hunter, who plays Grace Farrell, Oliver Warbucks’ secretary.
“I think it’s just a really beautiful show and a message that we really need right now. We are very excited to bring this to every stage, especially in Philly.”
Hunter landed her first professional role in “In the Heights” at the Walnut Street Theater almost 10 years ago.
“It was an amazing experience,” says Hunter. “I’m so excited to be at the Kimmel and to bring this show over here and to be back in Philadelphia.”
Annie has some local stars too, so keep your eyes peeled.
Annie opens on October 11th and runs at the Miller Theater through Sunday October 16th.
