1.) The dog will actually be active (in the production I did 7 years ago, the dog had to be dragged offstage during the cop chase scene. It was laughable from the audience's perspective, at least)
2.) The actress that plays Annie isn't some prima donna bitch like the last one.
3.) the stage moms that have to take care of the kids who play the orphans don't have as many cucumbers up their behinds.
Oh, well, I am sure it will be great. hope to see you all there!
