Turnaround Arts helps provide arts resources to high-poverty schools which, in turn, helps those schools to keep up attendance and maintain the sir students’ interest in furthering their education.

As part of their collaboration, Sony is providing support and resources for schools whose students are putting on their own productions of the Broadway classic. Annie’s stars, Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis visited one such school, Northport Elementary, where Wallis said, “I was excited to visit the school today. We had so much fun and I’m glad that they are preparing for their own production of Annie.  Every Annie can be different, which is one of the reasons why it is so great to be a part of.”
