"Heidi Gray as Annie is a true delight. This is a juggernaut role and she handles the demands like a pro. With an infusive personality and pipes for days, she brings Annie to life. Her range of emotion is quite impressive. When the dramatic moments arrive, she doesn’t sugar coat or fake anything. It is pure and honest." - CoolCleveland.com
"As Annie Heidi Gray belts out the “Let it Go” of its time “Tomorrow” like nobody’s business and her acting matches her strong voice. She has the grit needed for the toughness of her character but also shows her vulnerable side later on." -MDTheatreGuide.com
"Particularly talented is 11-year-old Heidi Gray, who recently
joined the cast in the title role. She certainly has the voice
and charm to carry this show."
"Heidi Gray’s Annie possesses just the right amount of feistiness needed to portray Annie...she’s also tough and street-smart, and Heidi, under Charnin’s guidance, brings that quality to the surface."
"Heidi Gray is confident, upbeat, and always optimistic as Annie, with a clear, strong, and winning singing voice that excels on her many songs."
