Besides the stellar performance by young Gracie Halverson who plays ANNIE and the chance to enjoy Steve Watts as Daddy Warbucks – here are two more great reasons to catch ANNIE before it closes on September 1 – Phil Sloves as Rooster, and Kerri Rose as Lily St. Regis.

Phil has performed here before as Luther Billis in SOUTH PACIFIC and Judge Group in MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET. He also appeared in SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS on Broadway and is fabulous as Rooster, one of the “comic villains” we speak of in the show’s description. His feisty side-kick is Kerri Rose, new to The Fireside and the Midwest but with an impressive list of credits. She’s performed as Rhoda in WHITE CHRISTMAS, Peggy Sawyer in 42ND STREET, Connie in SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, and more.  It’s Rooster and Lily who con Miss Hannigan into helping them try to claim they’re Annie’s long lost parents. They’re pictured here with Stacey Scotte as Miss Hannigan, the crabby caretaker who tries to make everyone believe she adores the little orphans. The trio’s rendition of “Easy Street” is a show-stopper! Seating is still available for most performances so give us a call today!
