Staff Report:

What’s the matter? Chaos in the federal government and strife in the Middle East got you down? Or you just managed to pay the propane bill, and suddenly the car is busted again? Are your troubles leaving you with a colorless gloom, casting a shadow on your day and leaving you wondering how, oh, how
can you possibly go on?

The answer is this: Annie, the wonderful, heartwarming musical with its message of hope. The cast of more than 70 Taos performers has been rehearsing since August, and will belt out the familiar “Tomorrow” until the most hardened cynic in the room becomes a believer.

Annie, opens Nov. 7 at the Taos Center for the Performing Arts, 133 Paseo Del Pueblo Norte in Taos, with performances at 7 p.m. Nov. 7, 8, 9 and 14, 15, 16, with an additional matinee at 1 p.m. Nov. 16.

Camille Cooper, 11, and Sally Tennant, 13, share the role of Annie. The orphans are also double-cast. Actors include Ana Chavez, William Hall, Naomi Hannah, Elena Trujillo, David Pérez and Jim Sanborn. In addition, a myriad of more actors—children, teens, and adults—along with the Taos Youth Ballet Company dancers—fill the show with life and color and movement.

Tickets for “Annie” are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and children and may be purchased by calling 505-758-2052 or during the business hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at the TCA business office.
