Jansen gets lead role in ‘Annie’

One local youngster is playing the lead role in Bridgeport-based Downtown Cabarets’ performance of Annie this holiday season.

Olivia Jansen, a sixth grader at Perry Hill School in Shelton, will be Annie in the production, which will run every weekend from Nov. 30 to Dec. 30.

And this is just the latest in what is becoming a long line of performances for the local actor. She has performed shows in the past with Center Stage in Shelton and currently takes acting, vocal and dance classes at Center Stage Education Center.

Tickets are available at dtcab.com/show/annie/ or by calling the box office.
