Annie Opens, Summer Weekends
Musicals at Richter
For almost 40 years it has been summer theater under the stars. First Gilbert and Sullivan, then Shakespeare now for 32 years it is Musicals At Richter. You are encouraged to be a part of the Summer Scene. Completing this summer is Annie, opening July 27.
Musicals at Richter is located at the Richter Art Center 100 Aunt Hack Road right here on Danbury's West side.
Annie, previously produced at Richter in 1990 is once again directed by Directed and Choreographed by Bradford Blake with Musical Direction by Dan Koch. Focused on a feisty 1930s-era orphan who escapes the tyrannical Miss Hannigan for a better life in the household of billionaire Oliver Warbucks, the Tony Award-winning musical boasts a tuneful score by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, and a book by Thomas Meehan. Annie opens Friday July 27 and plays Thursday through Sunday evenings through August 11.
