ANNIE JR IS AT MEDIA THEATRE ....SEE SHOW PICS!

The sun will come out tomorrow! That's what Annie sings and what audiences will walk away humming when they see "Annie Jr" at The Media Theatre. It's a special one-hour version of the legendary Broadway musical for youth audiences. A cast of young actors brings the show to life along with guest adult actors now through December 28.
CASSIDY ELSE AS ANNIE AND HENRY O' NEILL AS DADDY WARBUCKS
"Annie Jr" and the gang of singing orphans get Miss Hannigan riled up on Saturday mornings at 11am and Sundays at Noon. Daddy Warbucks helps to save the day after a conniving Rooster Hannigan and his friend Lily pretend to be Annie's parents. 

There are two talented young actresses playing Annie in this production. They alternate playing the chipper hopeful little girl each weekend. Cassidy Else and Amanda Treston, both New School students at Media Theatre who wowed audiences with their powerhouse performances during "The Vocalist Junior" this past summer, play the iconic role. Each of them get to sing "Tomorrow" and "Maybe" as audiences watch Annie escape the orphanage and hope for a brighter day.
AMANDA TRESTON, WHO ALSO PORTRAYS THE ROLE OF ANNIE
Henry O' Neill, a Delaware County policeman from Ridley Township, portrays Daddy Warbucks. This is O' Neill's first time on stage in a lead role, although he made his stage debut last winter in "Diary of Anne Frank" at The Media Theatre. He follows in his son Sean's footsteps, as his son has been seen in several Media Theatre productions. 
The cast of ANNIE JR
Aimee Theresa, an actress from the West Chester region, is Miss Hannigan. She's been featured in several award-winning films at the Philadelphia Film Festival and was seen at Media in "Death on the 16th Fairway", a world premiere play, in 2013.
Annie with her dog Sandy (Sebastian Fitzgerald)
"Annie Jr" follows the premise of the original two-act Broadway musical, but is condensed into an hour for young attention spans. The score is mostly intact, and scenes such as those dealing with President Roosevelt's cabinet have been cut from the "Jr" version. FDR does make an appearance, however, during the finale.
