Musical “Annie” opens at Music Mountain Theatre


Music Mountain Theatre presents the record-breaking hit musical “Annie” on its mainstage, 1483 Route 179, Lambertville, N.J., Nov. 1 to 24.

Under the direction of Co-Artistic Director Louis Palena, the music direction of Sue Den Outer, and the choreography of Palena and Co-Artistic Director Jordan Brennan, the family musical based on the Harold Gray comic strip “Little Orphan Annie,” runs for 16 performances.

The original Broadway production of “Annie” won seven Tony Awards, including “Best Musical.”

Depicting real-life situations of the Great Depression in New York City, it is the story of a lovable little red-haired orphan who outsmarts her greedy orphanage matron, Miss Hannigan, and wins an invitation to stay at billionaire business mogul Oliver Warbucks’ mansion for Christmas.

Young Jamyson Bultemeier of New Hope and Stevie Sanderson-Bowden of Pennington, N.J., share the role of the famous orphan, alternating weekends. They play protagonist to stage veteran Erin Looney as Miss Hannigan.

Rounding out the cast is Donald Hallcom as Oliver Warbucks, Jennifer Fischer as Grace Farrell, Jeff Stephens as Rooster Hannigan, Jaimie Geddes as Lily St. Regis, and stage pup Russell Bultemeier as Sandy.

The show include hit songs “Tomorrow,” “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “N.Y.C.,” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”
