There will be some familiar sounds coming from the Lake City Playhouse in Coeur d’Alene beginning Thursday.
It will be the sound of orphans singing “Tomorrow.” For the third time in three years, “Annie” will be staged at the Lake City Playhouse.
This time, though, there’s a new Annie. The title role will be played by Katy Ridenour, a 10-year-old from Garwood Elementary School in Hayden Lake. This will be Katy’s first major theatrical role.
Daddy Warbucks will be played by her real-life daddy, Steve Ridenour. Two of the other roles will be played by actors who have been in previous productions: Nancy Benun as Miss Hannigan, and Steve Seable as Rooster.
The director is Steve Bray. Musical direction is by Ann Brueggemeier, and choreography is by Traci Mack. The show is sponsored by Carpet Center.
This is a community theater production. The Playhouse dropped its professional summer stock season this year.
The show opens Thursday and continues July 28-29, Aug. 3-6, 10-13, 17-20. All shows are at 8 p.m. except 2 p.m. matinees on Sundays.
Tickets are available at the Playhouse box office, 14th and Garden, or at the Northwest Artists Cooperative on Sherman Avenue. Reservations are available by calling (208) 667-1323.
