Nearly three decades later, the Omaha cast of the musical “Annie” reunited — and enjoyed one more tomorrow. “Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya, tomorrow!” is the signature musical phrase of the show that has made a recent return to Broadway. But the cast and crew from the old Upstairs Dinner Theater — including three who sang the lead role of Annie in a memorable six-month run in 1984 — made a return of their own. They gathered in Omaha on Feb. 1 for a night of embracing, reminiscing and, of course, singing — until 1:15 a.m.
“It was absolutely amazing,” said Happi Holmes Berger, who was 10 when she won the lead role after auditions by dozens of girls. “Just to see all the people I hadn't seen in 30 years was wonderful.”
