Children sang and danced in the heartfelt story of the hopeful but sometimes miserable life of an orphan, in the Broadway production of Annie Jr. Their purpose was to raise awareness and raise funds so the orphans in Haiti will see the light of a better life. Produced by International Youth Theatre in coordination with Youth for Human Rights Florida, the show had a one-night showing at the Fort Harrison Hotel in Clearwater.
The story of Annie Jr., the little orphan who teaches how a “better tomorrow is only one day away,” is the perfect inspiration for those families who want to help one of the many children who have lost their parents in the recent devastation of the earthquake. With help, these children will not be raised as underprivileged. Hopefully, they can be raised in a nurturing, educational environment and grow up to be leaders of tomorrow and change Haiti to a prosperous nation.
As humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard stated, "Save the child and you save the nation.”
