Mackenzie Brain of Walnut Creek takes on the iconic role in Brentwood’s Broadway Repertory Theater production of “Annie.”

“Annie” — one of the top 25 musicals of all time — is coming to the East Bay next weekend, courtesy of Brentwood’s Broadway Repertory Theater.

The uplifting musical chronicles the life of an 11-year-old orphan named Annie, as she steps out of the orphanage to seek her parents who left her there 10 years ago.

The Broadway show has also been made into several movies over the years, with stars like Carol Burnett and Audra McDonald.

Broadway Repertory Theater has distinguished itself as an East Bay regional theater company that draws talent from all over the Bay Area. The cast of their “Annie” production consists of actors from Oakland, Castro Valley, Livermore and Martinez, in addition to those from Brentwood, Oakley and Discovery Bay.

The atmosphere at Broadway Repertory Theater is one of extreme excellence in performance, achieved within a nurturing environment. Work on “Annie” began last year, before its acclaimed productions of “The Secret Garden” and “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying.”

“Annie” performances will take place Friday and Saturday, June 28-29, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, June 30, at 3 p.m. at the Deer Valley High School theater. The following week, the production moves to Walnut Creek’s Lesher Arts Center, July 5-6, with shows at 7:30 p.m., and then Sunday, July 7, at 3 p.m.
