The large cast is led by Melissa Esposito in the lead role of Annie. David Woo will play Daddy Warbucks. Kori Brandt, Jessica Friedman, Odari McWorther and Mandy Miller round out the cast. Melissa Mendoza is understudy for the role of Annie. The play is being directed by West Oaks' Joanne Kahn.

The play will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the West Oak gym. A repeat performance will be at the same time Saturday.
