Leapin' Lizards! The irrepressible comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world's best-loved musicals.

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a world wide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical.  The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written including "Tomorrow".

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 cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous and magical world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations and befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. 

Annie is the perfect family-friendly musical, and an ideal show for a largely female cast. Middle Schools and elementary schools should also take notice of ANNIE JR - a special version of this title expressly designed for younger performers.

The original Broadway production of Five Guys Named Moe featured a conga line led by the cast that got most of the audience involved dancing through the aisles of the theatre and out into the bar for intermission.
