Annie is approximately 2 hours long with one 15 minute intermission. This show is appropriate for ALL AGES.

For those of you who take Dauberman Road to Kaneland, there is construction. Dauberman is scheduled to be closed for 2 months. The official posted detour is Harter Road to Perry Road (where the road splits) to County Line Road to Keslinger Road. The shorter option is to stay on HARTER at the road split (Harter goes straight, Perry veers left) and turn right on Watson Road, then turn right on Keslinger Road. The other option is not to take Harter, but stay on Route 47 to Keslinger Road.
