ANNIE Review: Musical Lives Up to Highest Standards of NDA Shows


This year’s NDA musical, Annie, did not fail to live up to the highest of standards set by previous productions.

As two veterans of many NDA musicals told me, “I’ve seen many NDA musicals, and this is the best of the best.”

The musical did a great job from the acting to the music to the sets, lighting and audio. 

The music was sung beautifully with the stand-out songs being “Maybe,” “Easy Street” and, of course, “Tomorrow.”

The musical was also immensely funny and gave good laughs, especially with the real-world allusions that were peppered throughout the play. 

One of the most surprising things about the musical was the choreography. This year’s musical was full of well-done dances and a couple of really impressive flips that added to the enjoyment of the show. 

The acting in the show was also immensely impressive with Frannie Wied being a natural as Annie and making it very easy to get immersed into the performance. The accents that were also used for the show were impressive as they sounded very authentic and captivating   

The show stealer for me was the fun addition of Benton, the dog that played Sandy in the play. Benton always managed to put a smile on my face when he was brought out on stage even for the briefest moments. 

Mrs. Gilson, her co-directors and all of the cast outdid themselves with this performance.The hard work and dedication really shines through during the show. The cast, crew, pit and everyone else that had a hand in putting this show together definitely have something to be proud of.
