OK, in the interest of keeping this message board fun and informative, let's hear from anyone who had an experience doing Annie with unusual props....I will start!
We did a production years ago, the christmas tree got rolled on by the servants, which would not have been half bad, except props never found one and so the night before the show, a large flat wooden one was built! They put lights on it,painted it and, poof, there it was. It actually worked because at that point we see Annie enter as the "cartoon" in her red dress and wig and the audience thought it was charming that the tree was in keeping with the "cartoon" effect! If I can find a picture I'll post it!
