“The Sun’ll come out Tomorrow!” Yes, the famous musical about the little red-haired orphan will once again return to the Alban!

Set in the 1930s, the little orphan, Annie, runs away from the despotic orphanage run by disreputable Miss Hannigan. She finds her way to a Hooverville and protects a stray dog, naming him Sandy. Taken back to the orphanage by the police she is saved by Grace, the secretary of billionaire Oliver Warbucks, and taken to his mansion to spend Christmas in luxury. Despite his gruff exterior Mr. Warbucks eventually warms to Annie, and promises to help find her parents. When no parents emerge, despite a large reward for information, Mr. Warbucks attempts to adopt Annie himself, but a Mr. and Mrs. Mudge appear with the other half of Annie’s locket. (However, this is really the brother and sister-in-law of Miss Hannigan, attempting to pocket the reward money.) President Roosevelt and the FBI step in to prove the Mudges and Miss Hannigan are crooks, and Annie has a bright future with Daddy Warbucks, Grace, and Sandy.  Featuring the well known songs; Tomorrow, Hard-Knock Life, Little Girls

    Moon Over Buffalo

    By Ken Ludwig

    Directed By George Snider

    Slapstick, mistaken identity, and is that Frank Capra? Set in playhouse in 1950s Buffalo, NY, “Moon Over Buffalo” is a tribute to the farces of the past.

    George and Charlotte Hay, traveling actors, are performing in a theatre in Buffalo. Charlotte regrets never becoming a film star, and everything seems to turn around when

    George receives a phone call from Frank Capra, who says that he needs replacements to star in his film “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” and that he plans to see the shows and consider George and Charlotte for the parts. The only problem with this potential happy new future is he news that George slept with Eileen , the young ingénue, and gotten her pregnant. Charlot announces her intention to leave with the couple’s lawyer, Richard, and George goes on a bender out of guilt.

    Charlotte and Roz , George and  Charlotte’s daughter, call every bar in town when they find out George was telling the truth about the movie offer. Into this mess steps Howard, Roz's new fiancé. Charlotte mistakes the bumbling man for Capra himself. George, meeting Howard, is afraid he is Eileen's brother, and in his drunken confusion wraps Howard in rope and locks him up.

    As Charlotte is getting ready to perform Noel Coward’s “Private Lives” for the famous director, George steps on stage as Cyrano De Bergerac. Farce ensues... Later, a sober, chastened George offers apologies, but stunningly Howard announces that he and Eileen used to be in item and dumps Roz. Roz gets back with her ex, Paul. George and Charlotte try and work things out. The lawyer ends up with nobody, and it turns out that Capra missed the first performance and will be actually attending the next show. Everything will turn out just fine, we think.
