Emmy Award Winner Sally Struthers Stars as Miss Hannigan
The Wick Theatre is proud to present Annie, starring Emmy Award-winning actress Sally Struthers as Miss Hannigan. Fun for the entire family, the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit features a terrific score and tells the heartwarming tale of Little Orphan Annie, who stole the heart of a lonely millionaire. Classic songs performed with a live orchestra include “Tomorrow,” “Easy Street,” “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed without a Smile.”
“We are thrilled to bring this feel-good family classic to The Wick for the holidays,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer. “And we are honored to have such a phenomenal cast including Sally Struthers as Miss Hannigan, Broadway star George Dvorsky as Daddy Warbucks and Ella Peyton, who starred in NBC’s Sound of Music, as Annie!”
Annie opened on Broadway in 1977, won the Tony Award for Best Musical and ran for six years. The charming musical is based on a comic strip by Harold Gray and features music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin and book by Thomas Meehan.
Sally Struthers catapulted to fame with her iconic portrayal of Gloria Bunker Stivic on the long-running Norman Lear situation comedy All in the Family, for which she garnered five Primetime Emmy nominations and two Emmy wins, as well as four Golden Globe nominations. She starred on the series of 9 to 5 as well as headlining her own show titled Gloria, and recently appeared in the reboot of the CW network’s popular Gilmore Girls.
On Broadway, Struthers appeared in Wally’s Café, the revival of Grease and Neil Simon’s female Odd Couple before making on the role of Miss Hannigan her own in the acclaimed 1998 Annie revival. Most recently she originated the role of Punky in the new musical Grumpy Old Men at the Ogunquit Playhouse.
George Dvorsky has appeared on Broadway in numerous plays including the original productions of The Scarlet Pimpernel and Stephen Sondheim’s Passion, and revivals of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Most recently, Mr. Dvorsky appeared as El Gallo in New York’s longest-running musical The Fantasticks.
Young Peyton Ella charmed an audience of millions with her performance as Gretl Von Trapp in the blockbuster NBC production of The Sound of Music Live starring Carrie Underwood and played Lottie in the recent Off-Broadway production of The Little Princess. Miss Ella first wowed audiences in the title role of Annie in the much-lauded Paper Mill Playhouse production.
