Annie’s debut is set for December 20th

Here in these parts, we love live theater!

There’s nothing quite like a stage with people on it telling a story…to reiterate, we love live theater.

Los Angeles has some very great spots to go see a show, some big places you can find Downtown and some very small ‘few seaters’ nestled in the heart of neighborhoods you might not have known existed. We love it all.

On December 20th, a production of Annie will go up at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn. I’m very excited to this production of Annie…mostly because this will be the debut production of Burbank’s Community Theater. And I love Burbank.


Founder, Julia Swanwick

Julia Swanwick is a Boston native who moved to Burbank in 2006. She loved the art scene that Burbank provides, but noticed something was missing…a Community Theater.

Julia wanted to  “start the group on the principles of mentorship and inclusion, whoever you are and however you wish to participate, you are welcome.”

Her vision is about to become a reality. She and her team have worked very hard this past year to raise funds through Kickstarter to fully fund a performance of Annie…really, a dream come true for Julia.


The Orphans of Annie

Julia and the team tried their best to get everyone a part who auditioned…truly a community. It will be going up for one weekend just before Christmas. What a perfect show for the holidays!

Over at my hyper local site,, we’re raffling off tickets to see this production. But if that doesn’t work out for you… you can purchase tickets HERE……
