2 Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG
Original Off-Broadway Version (1993)
The world's favorite orphan returns in the sequel to the international smash hit.
All the ingredients that made Annie so successful are here once again, with an old-fashioned romance thrown in for good measure in Annie Warbucks! TONY Award-winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin return with all new laughs, romance, and unforgettable songs.
The action picks up right where Annie leaves off, when Child Welfare Commissioner Harriet Doyle arrives on the scene to inform Daddy Warbucks he must marry in sixty days so the newly adopted Annie can have a proper mother. In the end, Daddy Warbucks' whirlwind search for a fitting bride uncovers not only a plot by Doyle and her daughter to strip him of his fortune, but also his true feelings for Grace Farrell.
Annie Warbucks the family-friendly musical is a wonderful opportunity to showcase a diverse cast of characters with strong vocal and acting abilities. The show also includes a large featured ensemble, making it the perfect choice for middle schools, high schools, and community theaters!

After Colm Wilkinson sang "Bring Him Home" from LES MISERABLES for the first time in rehearsal, director Trevor Nunn said, "See? I told you this show is about God." One of the actors responded, "Yes, but you didn’t tell us you engaged him to sing it."
