With the perfect combination of street smarts and optimism, Annie warms the audience’s hearts as she rises from “next to nothing” to finding riches in New York City.
She is determined to find her parents who left her at the orphanage years ago. Though things don’t quite work out the way she has planned, she does manage to thwart the plans of the evil Miss Hannigan and find a new family with billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his secretary Grace Farrell, and her lovable pooch Sandy.

Welcome To Our Website!
The Byng Community Theater was formerly the St. Louis Catholic Church in Abrams and we have done much to update the facility to make it performance-ready. We have installed a stage, lighting, a small dressing room, costume and props storage, and converted the vestibule area into a concession stand. We have also made use of existing office space by making one the Box Office with a ticket window and the other a sewing/costume area. There are changes for the better taking place all the time.
Our organization and the theater has become popular with Abrams and the surrounding communities. We have been involving children from age four and adults of all ages in acting, singing and dancing. We have also been training young adults to perform the lighting, sound, and backstage duties. We feel we are promoting the arts in young and old alike.
Taking part in the productions has been wonderful for all involved and we have built many friendships through our involvement.
Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. is a non-profit community theatre organization formed January 2003. Since 2007 we have been presenting three shows per year in our home, The Byng Community Theater. Please come and visit us at our next show!
