The actors will join previously announced Tony winner Lea Salonga, who will take on the role of Grace Farrell, assistant to billionaire Oliver Warbucks.

Performances are scheduled for July 27–29 at the outdoor venue. The production will be helmed by Tony-nominated director Michael Arden, who directed Salonga in this season's currently-running, Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Once On This Island. Additional casting will be announced later.

The creative team also includes conductor Todd Ellison and choreographer Eamon Foley.


This new production will mark the 90th birthday of the show's composer, Charles Strouse, who wrote the hit show along with lyricist Martin Charnin and bookwriter Thomas Meehan. Since its smash-hit Broadway debut in 1977, Annie has been revived twice on Broadway (in 1997 and 2014), spawned numerous national tours, and been adapted into three motion pictures (in 1982, 1999, and 2014).
