Sadie Sink is having a big week thanks to her moving performance as Max in Stranger Things (and her character’s dramatic ending in season 4, of course). But before she was Maxine Mayfield, Sadie played another iconic redhead: the titular Annie on Broadway. And fans are digging up old clips and playbills as proof.
Sadie took on the starring role in Annie in 2013, belting out songs like “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile” and “It’s the Hard Knock Life” when she was just 11 years old. Here’s Sadie with the cast of Annie that year:
Luckily, there are also videos from her performances, which are currently making the rounds on TikTok. In one, Sadie embodies Annie’s lovable charm with a rendition of “Tomorrow,” and in another, you can see her at various points in the production.
