The 2018 Season
Annie

August 23 – September 2

Just when we need her the most, that eternal optimist is back to teach us to believe in a better tomorrow. Monica M. Wemitt keeps the optimism in check when she takes on the villainous role of Miss Hannigan.

Annie and her story is the ultimate rags to riches tale full of delicious laughs, outrageous villains, and that ever lovable Sandy!

Sharing the title role of Annie will be Annabel Feigen and Rieleigh Smith.

Mac-Haydn favorite, Monica M. Wemitt, takes on the villainous role of Miss Hannigan. Ms. Wemitt was last seen playing Dolly in the Berkshire Theatre Award winning Hello Dolly of 2017. No stranger to the role, Wemitt made her Broadway debut in Hello Dolly playing Ernestina opposite Carol Channing.

The iconic role of the bald and benevolent Daddy Warbucks will be played by Mac-Haydn alumni and Broadway veteran George Dvorsky. MacHaydn audiences will remember George as Harold in The Full Monty. George’s career highlights include the title role in The Scarlet Pimpernel on Broadway. This will mark George’s fourth time playing the role of Daddy Warbucks.

Corinne Tork returns to play the quick-witted Grace Farrell after previously appearing as Lola in our season opener Damn Yankees. Rounding out the cast is the conniving duo of Rooster and Lily St. Regis played by Sebastiani Romagnolo and Sarah Kawalek, respectively.

All your favorite hits from this beloved classic are here to delight you and send the family into the Fall season full of hope and wonder!

John Saunders directs and Patrick Heffernan choreographs this season ender. Jimm Halliday designs the costumes and Kevin Gleason designs the sets.
