Eleven-year-old Sadie Sink, formerly of Houston, has been named one of two young actresses who will share the title role in Annie on Broadway.
Sink, originally from Houston, came through Theatre Under the Stars' Humphreys School of Musical Theatre and was Annie in a production here. She and her family -- she has an older brother who was in Elf on Broadway -- moved to New York City.
Taylor Richardson, another 11-year-old from Richmond, Va., is the other young actress who'll play Annie. Both have been understudies for the lead role and otherwise play one of the many orphans in the musical. They'll divide the eight shows a week between them and when not play Annie, will play one of the orphans.
