Sink, originally from Houston, came through Theatre Under the Stars' Humphreys School of Musical Theatre and was Annie in a production here. She and her family -- she has an older brother who was in Elf on Broadway -- moved to New York City.
Taylor Richardson, another 11-year-old from Richmond, Va., is the other young actress who'll play Annie. Both have been understudies for the lead role and otherwise play one of the many orphans in the musical. They'll divide the eight shows a week between them and when not play Annie, will play one of the orphans.
Sink also played Susan Waverly in the TUTS production of White Christmas.
Here's a look at her being interviewed last year when she first came to the Broadway show. One of the commenters noted that Sink should be playing Annie.
