Little orphan Annie is coming to the Park Theater beginning this Thursday night at 7 p.m.Irving College fifth-grader Karigan Smith stars as Annie in the production of “Annie Jr.,” a musical with 40 songs, according to director Logan Taylor.The show features a cast of familiar characters, including the selfish Miss Hannigan and the welcoming Daddy Warbucks. Annie, an 11-year-old orphan, tries to navigate her way through a maze of troubles growing up in the 1930s after the Great Depression.“This has exceeded my expectations by far,” said Taylor. “As I’ve been watching rehearsals over the past week I can’t help but think, ‘Wow!’ We have had some great casts during our productions in the past, but this is the best cast of characters we’ve had yet.
