Jeff Van Paris, the director and choreographer, is delighted to be directing this show again.
“‘Annie’ is a show that has been special to my family for 17 years,” he said. “My daughter played the title role several times, and this is my sixth ‘Annie’ production that I have been either in, directed, or choreographed. It is a joy to be able to share this experience with so many talented and enthusiastic kids and parents.”
This is The Biz’s sixth youth production since they opened their doors in August 2012 at Avon. The Biz offers theater-related classes in singing, acting, and dance, as well as offering the opportunity for area youth to experience live theater, in a welcoming, safe, and educational setting.
