LOOK: 'Annie' Opens at Beck Center

The beloved musical set to run from Dec. 7 through Jan. 6 on the Mackey Stage.

It’s a hard-knock life.

But, at least it will be a fun winter at the Beck Center for the Arts.

One of the world’s most well-known musicals will be running on the Mackey Stage at the Lakewood arts institution from Dec. 7 through Jan. 6.

We all know it: “Annie” is the story of the spunky Depression-era, red-headed orphan determined to find her parents who abandoned her on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage.

In adventure after fun-filled adventure — and run-ins with the embittered Miss Hannigan — and finds a new home in the mansion of billionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks. 

Directed by Beck Center Artistic Director Scott Spence, Annie features equity actors Caitlin Elizabeth Reilly as the faithful Grace Farrell and Leslie Feagan as Franklin Delano Roosevelt — as well as Gilgamesh Taggett as bullish billionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks and a talented ensemble of 26 area actors who share this story of hope for the holidays, according to a Beck Center news release. 

The show times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays — note the early curtain times. There are additional 2:30 p.m. matinee performances on Dec. 15 and Dec. 29 (but no evening performance on Dec. 29) and Jan. 5.

A special 7:30 p.m. Thursday show will also be offered on Dec. 20 and Dec. 27.

Tickets are now on sale, but matinee performances are selling fast.
