About the Show: Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, with a beloved book and score by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie KIDS features everyone’s favorite little redhead in her very first adventure.
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. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Annie: Annie is a complex, tough, streetwise urchin who is surprisingly vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: her newfound "family."
The Orphans: are gritty girls that are neglected and vulnerable, yet basically honest and lovable.
Miss Hannigan: Miss Hannigan is a definite "has-been." Her distaste for her job should ooze from every line she delivers.
Grace Farrell: is Oliver Warbucks's calm, cool and classy secretary. She appears businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and Warbucks, yet maternal toward Annie.
Rooster Hannigan and Lily St. Regis: are the comic team who claim to be Annie's parents but are revealed to be Miss Hannigan's swindling brother and his sleazy girlfriend in disguise.
Oliver Warbucks: is the daunting millionaire who made his fortune during World War I as an industrialist.
Sandy: is the stray dog that Annie adopts.
Drake and the Servants: are the loyal domestic help of Oliver Warbucks.
The New Yorkers: are comprised of a wonderfully colorful collection of characters, usually identified by their occupation.
