Provided below is a list of leading roles in Annie.


Annie - Annie is a tough streetwise urchin who is, nevertheless; vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: a newfound “family” who loves her. Throughout the show she shows independent, needy, maternal, and hopeful qualities. Although she is at times aggressive or crafty, there is no doubt that Annie is a friendly and caring child.


Miss Hannigan– Miss Hannigan is the evil orphanage matron. Her distaste for her job and the children is obvious in every move she makes. She is predictable and funny in her ridiculous, cruel ways.


Oliver Warbucks – A powerful, self-assured billionaire who always has his mind on business. While sometime gruff and abrupt he has a kind heart. At first he is awkwardly affectionate toward Annie, but he soon finds himself completely charmed by her.


Grace Farrell - She is the beautiful and loyal private secretary to Oliver Warbucks. Grace is mature, calm, and classy. She is businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and Warbucks, yet maternal toward Annie.


Rooster Hannigan - Miss Hannigan's despicable brother. Rooster is flashy and self-assured. His “moves” are as smooth as a gambler’s, sly, and deceiving.


Lily St. Regis– Lily is Rooster’s airhead girlfriend. She is always distracted, although she manages to pick up on any conversation involving money.
