Leapin’ lizards! The timeless tale of the comic strip heroine, Little Orphan Annie, is back. With equal parts pluck and positivity, Annie charms everyone she encounters as she sets out to find her parents who abandoned her on the doorstep of Miss Hannigan’s New York City orphanage. The winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this beloved book and score features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” and “Tomorrow.” A Broadway classic that inspires its audiences to never give up hope, Annie is a delightful theater experience for the entire family.
