Rollins College’s Annie Russell Theatre continues its 80th season with a pair of thought-provoking productions. The Pulitzer Prize–winning Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz tells the enchanting story of Cuban immigrants running a cigar factory in Florida. A tradition in Cuban workplaces, the factory laborers hire a storyteller to read to them while they work. As the newly hired lector reads the novel Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy’s tale begins to intertwine with the workers’ lives, opening up a fantastical world of drama and romance. Striking a different chord, Oliver Goldsmith’s farcical comedy She Stoops to Conquer transports audiences back to the 18th century, where aristocrat Kate Hardcastle, who was played by Annie Russell in a 1912 performance, pretends to be a common maid in order to woo a wealthy suitor who shies away from women of stature. Kate’s undercover plan sets the stage for mistaken-identity hijinks and ensuing romance.
Annie Russell Theatre at Rollins College
In 1931, Mary Louise Curtis Bok gave her friend Annie Russell a unique gift: her very own theater. Since its first production, which starred Annie herself in 1932, the Annie Russell Theatre hasn’t had a dark season and has become one of Florida’s longest-running theaters. As an integral part of Rollins College’s department of theater and dance, “The Annie” has also churned out a number of notable graduates, including Buddy Ebsen, Dana Ivey, Christopher Fitzgerald, and an Emmy-winning lighting designer. The theater’s rich history helped it earn a place on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998 and a visit from Annie Russell's ghost.
