Everyone's favorite red-headed orphan managed to sellout six shows making ANNIE one of the most
successful DCT Adult Actors Wing fundraisers in recent history. Audiences packed the DCT for each
performance and were witness to a beautifully executed production by
Stage Director & Producer, Marie Swajeski with Musical Direction from Tony Romano.

More than forty talented actors from the tri-state region graced the DCT stage with their energy and exceptional "character." Of course, it takes a lot of hard work behind the scenes to mount a production of this magnitude, and over 20 crewmembers created, built, and ran the show without ever being noticed by the audiences. Without their unwavering commitment to the DCT, there would be no show.

Thank you to our performers, technicians, musicians, volunteers, and staff
for making this a memorable event for our DCT guests.

And to our loyal supporters... we are forever grateful for your continued dedication to the DCT. A thousands thanks for your loyalty... we couldn't do it without you!


Our Season Soon Closes
Help the DCT end its 2006-2007 theatrical season with a triumphant "ROAR!"
