This September Resorts World Manila presents its seventh major stage production—the beloved family musical ANNIE.
After the first successful staging in the country in 1980, ANNIE promises to rekindle its love affair with older audiences and charm new generations with its inspirational story about a charismatic orphan’s optimistic outlook in life against all odds.
Playing the role of Annie are Krystal Brimner, 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival best child actress winner for her role in the indie film “Honor Thy Father,” and Isabeli Araneta Elizalde, a newcomer hailing from one of the entertainment industry’s more prominent families, who both bested hundreds of other hopefuls auditioning for the role.
Joining the kids for the main roles are award-winning actor Michael De Mesa who will play the wealthy Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, the first lady of Philippine theater Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo as Ms. Agatha Hannigan, Jill Pena as Secretary Grace Farrell, and Mako Alonso and Red Concepcion alternating as the conniving Daniel “Rooster” Hannigan.
Tickets are priced at PhP3,523 for SVIP; PhP3,082 for VIP; PhP2,422 for Gold; PhP1,651 for Silver; and PhP880 for Bronze. Tickets are available at all TicketWorld outlets. Call (02) 891-9999 for ticket inquiries.
