This word invokes so many emotions and meaning to each person. Here at Abrams Spotlight Productions, this word has a special meaning for us heading into our 2017 season. Coming off a successful 2016 season, we have renewed optimism that our upcoming season will be a success, not just for us, but for our community. Abrams Spotlight Productions has always been proud of our local community, and the support we receive, and we always have them in mind with every song we put on stage, every dance move that is taught, every light that is focused. With optimism in mind, we are excited to announce our spring 2017 production, Annie! We wanted to choose a show that invoked this optimistic attitude, while bringing back the kids of our community to give them renewed opportunities and optimism heading into spring.

Annie is a family favorite and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The score was written by Charles Strouse and Martin Charmin, and includes the smash hit “Tomorrow”. With the perfect combination of street smarts and optimism, Annie warms the audience as we witness her rise from “next to nothing” 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.

Abrams Spotlight Productions is looking forward to another successful show, and we hope you will choose to be a part of this, either on the stage or in the audience! As 2017 starts, we will be choosing the remainder of our 2017 season, so please like us on Facebook, sign up for our newsletter, or check our website for more announcements to come. Optimism is here!!
