The irrepressible comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals just in time for the winter holidays! Annie is a worldwide phenomenon and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The score features some of the greatest musical theater hits ever written, from the unforgettable “It’s the Hard-Knock Life” and “Easy Street” to the anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.” Little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts in her escape from an orphanage to the wondrous world of 1930s New York City. Along the way, she even befriends President Roosevelt and finds a home and family in the billionaire Oliver Warbucks for herself and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Annie is the perfect musical for the entire family!

Medea, Studio Theater, Mercer Community College, 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, 609-570-3333
7:30 p.m., Play based on Greek mythology. $18., www.kelseytheatre.net

Foreigner. Woman. Outsider. When Medea abandons her father's house and leaves her homeland, she does so urged on by her love for Jason and his oaths of loyalty to her. When those oaths prove false, love turns to hatred and married bliss turns to bloody revenge. This is the story of what happens when an extraordinary woman finds herself forced to take action against a system which denies her agency based solely on her gender and her nationality. With sentiments that resonate as surprisingly modern and topical in a volatile political climate, Euripides invites us to examine the consequences of a woman, an immigrant, breaking out of the role which a patriarchal society has forced her to play.

Uncle Floyd, Catch a Rising Star, Hyatt Regency, 102 Carnegie Center, West Windsor, 609-987-8018
8 p.m., www.catcharisingstar.com

Uncle Floyd began his career in show business as a child, dancing at the 1964 World's Fair in New York and at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. As a high school student he was being groomed by dance and piano instructors to pursue careers in those fields. Finding it difficult to practicing the piano eight hours a day or working out in ballet class, he dropped both in his junior year, performing instead in the drama club. In high school - on stage he found the sound of laughter more fulfilling than applause.  He has appeared as an actor on NBC’s “Law & Order” (twice), ABC’s soap opera “Loving,” “Bill Boggs Comedy Tonight” (syndicated), Nickelodeon's “Turkey TV,” and has filled in for Gilbert Gottfried on USA’s “Up All Night.” Comedy Channel audiences have seen him in the “Dr. Demento Show.” Between all this he managed to get acting roles in several films including “Good Morning Vietnam,” “Crazy People,” “Mr. Wonderful,” “A Pyromaniac’s Love Story,” and “The Clowns Of Babylon.”
