Inspired by “Little Orphan Annie,” the 1924 comic strip by Harold Gray, “Annie” is a heart-warming story, filled with adventure and laughs, that defines what family truly means. One of the longest running shows in Broadway history and the winner of seven Tony Awards, Annie, returns to the WBT stage from June 29 to September 10, 2017!
Annie, one of the world’s best-loved musicals, is set in 1933, in New York City during the Great Depression, tells the story of a young orphan who charms those around her with her spunky personality. However, the orphanage’s supervisor, Miss Hannigan, is less than charmed and punishes Annie & the other orphans and even concocts a devious get-rich-quick scheme. Annie finds refuge from the orphanage when billionaire Oliver Warbucks asks her to spend the holidays with him. Magic and adventure follow as Annie develops loving relationships with the many people she encounters, including the President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In the end, she foils Miss Hannigan’s evil plans and finds a loving family that she can call her own. Notable musical numbers include “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You,” and “Tomorrow.”
The roles of Annie and the Orphans are yet to be cast and a big open talent search for local children is scheduled for May 20 & 22.
