Corrieanne Stein first played the role of Annie in 'Annie Warbucks' when she was nine.
She first performed professionally in 2006 at age 10. After a year on Broadway in 'Billy Elliot' finally got to play the title role in 'Annie' in August 2009.
There was so much local advanced publicity, that the four performances at the F. Scott Fitzgera;d Theater in her home town of Rockville, MD that all performances were sold out a week in advance. The cast consisted of very talented local youngsters and teenagers along with a half-dozen adults. Corrieanne received special permission from Actors Equity.
It was perhaps the best musical on or off Broadway I have seen in the past fifty years.
