This is something that I discovered the last time I did Annie. We all know that Annie wears a silver locket and that Warbucks gives her another one.
I found a company (in Chicago, oddly enough, about 10 miles from my house) that sells girls' silver lockets for $16.99. They will engrave them with one name, up to seven letters for free. Since I am in Illinois, I have to pay sales tax (if you aren't, you don't), and shipping is about $3.50, bringing the grand total up to under $23. Whenever I play Warbucks, I have always asked "Annie's" mom first if I could do it, but I always give my Annie a silver locket with her name engraved on it. Then, I ask "Annie" if I could give it to her every night of the show. That way, we have a crucial prop for the show and I get to give her the same present over and over again.
I always tell her that when she wins her first Tony Award, she has to wear the locket and if anyone asks her what it lis, she should say, "Some OLD guy who I was in a play with once gave it to me".
The company is called Limoges Jewely The SKU Number of the locket is 18662
it is something to think about for your "Annie".
Thank you! You're a lifesaver! I am doing Warbucks for a community theater group in Phoenix and wanted to do something for our Annie's. This will be perfect! Thank you Jamey! Charlie
Glad to help. I love that role so much and hopefully, I can show my "leading lady" how much it and they mean to me through this small gesture.
We DO want to see video clips once the show opens. Gobble 'em up, Mr. Warbucks!
