Lilla Crawford, who played the title role in the 2012 Broadway revival of Annie and Little Red Riding Hood in the 2014 film adaptation of Into the Woods, jumps to the small screen August 21 with the premiere of the animated Nickelodeon series Sunny Day, in which she lends her voice to the lead character.

Aimed at preschoolers, the show bows at 10 AM ET/PT on Nickelodeon, and will also be seen on Treehouse TV starting at a date to be announced this fall. The show is based on Abie Longstaff’s children’s book series The Fairytale Hairdresser, illustrated by Lauren Beard.
