About The Program

In addition to our Professional Season, Berkeley Playhouse produces several youth only productions a season. Our acclaimed programs gives talented students the opportunity to participate in full-scale, youth-only productions of the highest quality with some of the best professional directors, choreographers, and designers in the Bay Area.

An audition is required to be admitted into the program. See below for audition information.

With a perfect combination of street-smarts and optimism, Annie warms the hearts of everyone as we witness her rise from next-to-nothing in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents, who left her at the orphanage years ago. Based on Little Orphan Annie, the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide sensation. Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the beloved show features a wonderful score written by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, including “Hard Knock Life”, “Maybe” and “Tomorrow”.
