Duluth Playhouse proudly presents ANNIE at the NorShor Theatre
[October 25, 2021] Duluth, MN – Don’t miss the holiday event of the season! Duluth Playhouse
presents Annie November 20th through December 19th at the NorShor Theatre.
Spend the holidays with everyone’s favorite red headed orphan and her dog Sandy as they escape the
dastardly Miss Hannigan by getting whisked off to the mansion of Oliver Warbucks. Join Annie as
she navigates 1930s New York City in search of community, connection, and a place to call home.
Her bravery and childlike wisdom bring hope to a recovering nation in need. This Tony Award-
winning Broadway musical is the perfect reminder that the sun will always come out tomorrow.
Duluth Playhouse Producing Artistic Director Phillip Fazio will direct the production. “Annie has
been a favorite musical of mine for as long as I can remember having favorite musicals. This
unabashedly joyous musical has been warming the hearts of theater goers for over forty years. Now
more than ever, we should celebrate the hopeful spirit of an optimistic eleven-year-old who goes on
an unforgettable journey to find her family.”
The production is led by Cadence Graber and Sofia Salmela who alternate performances as the title
character. Joining them are Gabriel L. Mayfield Sr. as Oliver Warbucks and Haley Methner as Grace
Farrell. Christina Stroup will keep us laughing as the hilariously wicked Miss Hannigan, teaming up
with Andy Frye as Rooster and Dorian Brooke as Lily St. Regis. Rounding out the cast are Isabella
Birchhill, Clare Boyle, Evy Bradley, Gigi Calland, Mimi Effinger, Gwen Evans, Antony Ferguson,
Violet Fletcher, Katie Hanka, Sam Hildestad, Jagger Jaakola, Zoe Jazdzewski, Paisley Kern, Quinn
Lorez, Kyle McMillan, Mia Patronas, Justin Peck, Abrianna Schmidt, Henriette Soderlind, Christian
Van Orsdel, Addy Wheeler. They are joined by a lavish 16 piece orchestra playing this classic score.
