Leapin’ Lizards! America’s most beloved musical, ANNIE, is back in its 30th anniversary tour, giving a whole new generation the chance to experience this classic musical about never giving up hope. The timeless tale of Little Orphan Annie will be at the Civic Center Music Hall for only eight performances March 11th-16th.
“One of the best musicals ever,” proclaims the Chicago Tribune, and the Chicago Sun-Times says, “Ageless Annie is as engaging as ever.” Boasting one of Broadway’s most memorable scores, including “It’s the Hard-Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “N.Y.C.” and the ever optimistic “Tomorrow,” you can bet your bottom dollar that ANNIE will bring a smile to your face.
A familiar story – after years of the hard-knock life at the New York City Municipal Orphanage, 11-year-old Annie decides to run away to find her parents. Annie sneaks out of the orphanage and comes across Sandy, an abandoned mutt who becomes her fast friend and constant companion. Soon after her escape, the police catch up with Annie, and she is returned to the villainous orphanage director Miss Hannigan.
Billionaire Oliver Warbucks wants to invite an orphan to visit his mansion for the Christmas holiday. Once Annie arrives at the mansion, she is completely in awe of her new surroundings, along with the special treatment that she is receiving. After spending the evening with her, Warbucks decides he wants to adopt her.
When he announces his intentions to Annie, she begins to cry and explains her wish to find her parents. With this newfound information, Warbucks begins an extensive search for Annie’s parents, offering a reward to any couple who can prove that she is their daughter.
With plans to claim the reward money for her own, scheming Miss Hannigan hatches a plot with her brother Rooster and his girlfriend Lilly. Warbucks calls in a favor from his personal friend President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the FBI investigates. The truth is revealed – and Annie learns her real parents are unfortunately dead. After hearing the news, Annie and Warbucks declare their love for each other as father and daughter.
The original Broadway production of ANNIE won seven 1977 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book and Score. It ran for 2,377 performances, and has subsequently been produced all over the world. The original production is one of the top 20 longest running shows in Broadway history, and ANNIE continues to be one of the most successful musicals ever.
