Annie is (almost) in town! Don’t miss the opportunity to see performances of such unforgettable songs as “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You” and “Tomorrow.”
Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray and featuring book and score by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, the musical is set in 1930s New York during The Great Depression. It follows a fiery little red-haired girl in her quest to find her real parents as she leaves behind a life of torment at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage to spend Christmas, along with her dog Sandy, at the residence of enigmatic millionaire Oliver Wartbucks. And even though the horrible Miss Hannigan will do anything to prevent Annie from achieving her dreams, our little heroine will get her happy ending.
