Leapin' lizards! The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world's best-loved musicals.
Annie is spunky Depression-era orphan who is taken from her New York City Orphanage, run by the cruel and embittered Miss Hannigan, to stay at the mansion of billionaire Oliver Warbucks for the holidays. When Annie wins the hearts of Warbucks and his staff, they set out on an epic mission to find Annie’s parents. Meanwhile, Miss Hannigan, in partnership with her brother Rooster and his girlfriend Lily, attempt to make some money out of this unique situation. The stories become intertwined as the lovable Annie’s story hits the national spotlight.
In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and finds a new family and home.
Featuring such unforgettable songs as "It’s the Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow," this family-friendly 1977 Tony Award winner for Best Musical is based on Harold Gray's popular comic strip "Little Orphan Annie," by permission of the Tribune Content Agency, LLC, and presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
