HUDSON, NC (May 30, 2017)…The classic Broadway musical, “Annie” will be presented as the 2017 Fall Hudson Dinner Theatre Production.

Please wear comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes, as you will be asked to move and do some basic dance steps. Please bring a copy of the sheet music with which you plan to audition, preferably a musical selection from the play, “Annie.” Your piece should be memorized.
