Truly one of the most popular musicals in America; the songs, the comedy, and the eternal optimism still fill the audience with tomorrow’s sunshine today. For those who don’t know, little orphan Annie finds a way to make friends with Daddy Warbucks – a millionaire – in the middle of the 30’s depression. Trouble sets in. The president of the U.S. is visited. And Annie somehow succeeds in make it all wonderful in the end. And the music: “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” ” I Don’t Need Anyone But You”, “Tomorrow,” and more! Winner of seven Tony Awards, this is entertainment for the whole family.
