Rollins College’s Annie Russell Theatre—the longest-running theatre in Central Florida—will begin its 84th season on September 23. From an improvised parody of a popular television program to the story of six women’s experiences in the Vietnam War, the Annie’s 2016-17 season is asking questions about what makes us tick.
