    #sdff14’s Mission


    The San Diego International Fringe Festival focuses on the artists and creating community. We encourage the development of San Diego as a destination for innovative artistic expression — and a great opportunity to witness Local, National and International emerging artists. In its first year, the festival won the “Bravo SD Award,” a “Best of San Diego Award,” and the San Diego Theatre Critic Circle’s award as an “Outstanding Special Event"

    The Lyceum Theatre is proud to host 46 events as part of the Fringe Festival. For show shedules and ticket purchases please visit http://www.sdfringe.org/

    Actors’ Conservatory Theatre Presents Annie Jr.

    Directed by Bernard Baldan 
    Music directed by Tim McKnight
    Choreographed by Athena Espinoza
    Annie Jr. is based on the popular comic strip Little Orphan Annie. Annie Jr. tells the story of a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Roosevelt, finds a new family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks along with his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and of course the lovable mutt named Sandy. Its upbeat plot and flamboyant characters have made Annie one of the most beloved musicals in history.
