Touring production of Annie falls flat despite best efforts of young Toronto actors as plucky orphans

I like the story of Annie, the little orphan girl who is plucked from a sad excuse for an orphanage by a rich benefactor with a big heart. There's a dog, and a cruel lady who terrorizes the little girls and even an attempted swindle. It's a classic tale with all the right elements. And, we've had so many wonderful productions including a recent movie starring Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks as well as the classic 1982 film with the incomparable Carol Burnett as the alcoholic Miss Hannigan, who runs the orphanage like a sweat shop. There is a lot of history and quite the high water mark to live up to for any subsequent attempt, and unfortunately the latest Mirvish musical production doesn't get there.
