The Gallery Players presents the beloved musical adventure about a lovable spirited orphan, based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, and famous for its classic songs such as 'Tomorrow' and 'It's a Hard Knock Life.' More…
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations…and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
'Annie' was the winner of seven Tony awards in 1977, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book.
“This production of ‘Annie’ is simply marvelous. Anchored by a strong cast, this classic story of the hard-knock orphan who miraculously becomes the adopted daughter of Oliver Warbucks, melted the hardest hearts while remaining accessible to the plethora of children in attendance. The audience couldn't help but be impressed by this touching tale of fortune favoring the luckless. Annie's positive attitude and outlook on life should be adopted by all (not just FDR and his senior cabinet.)” Full Review
