Background Story
Leapin’ lizards! The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.  Annie is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find the parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, mean Miss Hannigan.  In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil plot, befriends President Franklin Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and loveable mutt name Sandy.
