RIO GRANDE — The French Art Colony’s Riverby Theater Guild (RTG) recently had a successful run of the beloved musical, “Annie,” based off the “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip. Currently enjoying a successful revival on Broadway, “Annie” is story of hope told with humor, heart and memorable music. RTG’s “Annie” was cast with more than 20 local actors, including Olivia Neal as Annie, Greg Shrader as Daddy Warbucks, Julie Reed as Grace Ferrel and Nattalie Phillips as Miss Hannigan. The production was directed by Lori Sanders and Beth Fowble.
