15 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

In advance of the release of the highly anticipated motion picture Annie, in theaters on December 19, 2014, Sony Pictures Entertainment is helping to support Turnaround Arts, a signature program of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

As part of a collaboration with Annie to promote arts education, Turnaround Arts will receive support, and Turnaround Arts schools who want to put on the Broadway classic will get resources and assistance in staging their production.

The initiative kicked off Wednesday, September 10, 2014 in Minneapolis, where Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, and filmmaker Will Gluck visited Northport Elementary, a Turnaround Arts school, where they met the first-through-fifth graders and worked with students preparing to audition for their school production of “Annie. »

28 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Ed Sheeran dressed up as Little Orphan Annie for a sketch on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night, appearing onstage in the character’s signature red dress.

Jimmy Kimmel introduced the bit, commenting on NBC’s decision to cast Allison Williams to play Peter Pan in their live broadcast of the beloved musical.

“NBC announced recently they’re planning a live televised production of the musical Peter Pan, and what’s interesting about that is Peter Pan will be played by the very talented Allison Williams, who is a woman…That’s great, but tonight I have the honor of announcing that my network, ABC, has decided to top them,” Kimmel told his audience.

Kimmel then announced that ABC would be putting on a live production of the famous musical Annie starring Ed Sheeran in another effort of gender-swap casting.

This Christmas, one little girl will be showing some bigwigs in New York that you can't push your way to the top unless you show maybe a little kindness.

William Stacks is a determined, hard-working man whose goal is to become mayor of New York. Although a bit one-track minded, Stacks does have some goodness in his heart, and it shows after he rescues a little orphan girl named Annie.
