On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Jill Girard about Annie Jr opening at The People’s Theatre this week.
It’s the classic story of hope and optimism – a young orphan keeps her chin up in the face of adversity, winning hearts as she skips and sings her way through a hard knock life, never giving up hope that she will find her parents.
Annie Jr features everyone’s favourite little redhead in her very first adventure. Little Orphan Annie has come a long way since she first made her pop culture debut as a comic strip in 1924. Since then she has been reincarnated into a radio show, films and even a Broadway hit.
And now she makes her way to Joburg’s Peoples Theatre, known for its creative way of making much-loved classics accessible to families across the City of Gold.
Renos spoke to Jill Girard, Director of The People’s Theatre about Annie Jr.
