A Delightful "Annie" by El Dorado Musical Theatre

Last call for “Annie,” El Dorado Musical Theatre’s Christmas season production. The characters come from a popular comic strip of years past about an orphan girl whose eyes have no pupils. (I’m talking about the drawings, not the girl.) The story takes place in 1933, during the Great Depression, when the economy was worse than it is today. Also, instead of fearing terrorists, people worried about a war with the Nazis.

Yet, like today, there was optimism. Along with the New Deal, voters bought change, hope and a longing for unity. The haunting “Tomorrow,” dominating its fourteen other songs, catches the spirit of the play and its music.

Here’s the schedule:
