"ANNIE JR" is solidly based on the two-act version of the Tony winning hit, with all of the wonderful characters audiences know and adore. Based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strip, we learn about what hope amidst difficult times is able to do as we move toward the future. As it has been re-developed for young audiences, the scenes involving the Presidential Cabinet have been deleted to keep the action moving quickly toward its inevitable happy ending.
With the the beloved book and score by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin featuring some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written including "Tomorrow" the show is the perfect family treat for the holidays.
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the grumpy Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy (who, in this version, is portrayed by a young actor).
