Peyton Ella is currently cast in the title role of “Annie” at The Wick Theatre; however, Ella is not new to the role. She has been cast as Annie three previous times, making her role at The Wick her fourth. Ella’s previous “Annie” appearances were at the Muny, the Westchester Broadway Theater, and the Paper Mill Playhouse.


The production runs in the family. In 1983, Ella’s mother Tara Kennedy was cast in the title role at the Paper Mill after being an understudy for the part during the show’s run on Broadway. Thirty-four years later, her daughter Peyton was cast in the same role at the same theater.


“Annie” featuring Peyton Ella will run at The Wick from November 29th to December 23rd.
