ABOUT THE SHOW:
Often called ‘America’s Happiest Musical’, Annie tells the story of a spunky red-headed orphan who longs to leave the orphanage and find her real parents. When Billionaire Oliver Warbucks invites Annie to spend Christmas at his mansion, Annie jumps at the chance to find her family, with the help of Warbucks promise of a $50,000 reward of course. But when the drunken Miss Hannigan and her con-artist brother try to make off with the reward money, the good guys win, the bad guys get caught and Annie finds love in the arms of her adopted ‘Daddy’ Warbucks. What musical could be happier than that?
