ANNIE JR SNEAK PEEK VIDEO: "IT'S A HARD KNOCK LIFE"
That's one of the most familiar tunes Broadway ever created thanks to the hit musical "Annie". The appeal of the song, performed by orphans as they joyfully and assertively sing about the awful predicament they are in, reaches across demographic boundaries as all ages are able to feel the universal statement the song is making.
Audiences at The Media Theatre will be able to see the famous number as well as other familiar tunes being performed when they see "ANNIE JR" this fall. The one-hour condensed version of the iconic musical with music by Martin Charnin, lyrics from Charles Strouse, and a book by Thomas Meehan is on Saturday mornings at 11am and Sundays at Noon from October 4 to December 28.
All of the principle characters from the show are in "ANNIE JR" including those hopeful orphans, Miss Hannigan, Daddy Warbucks, Grace, and--of course--the red-haired little girl and her dog Sandy. In this version, it's even more fun for youth audiences as Sandy is played by a child actor!
Here's a Sneak Peek at "ANNIE JR" at The Media Theatre, with video shot during the very first music with dance rehearsal:
