About this Event
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 JR. 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.
With plenty of parts to go around, including featured roles as well as ensemble parts for orphans, servants and tourists, Annie JR. is ideal for productions involving different grade levels.
The ActLiveNow Jr. Theater Program exists for one reason only: our firm belief that theater provides unique benefits to children, including enhanced self-confidence, teamwork, and a sense of belonging. We believe that children learn best when they are given opportunities, which is why in our productions, every child has a substantive part, for meaningful exploration and growth of their new skills. Our outstanding creative team have years of experience helping each child to reach their full potential, and our low-impact format -- one class a week, one show a year— won't take over your life like some theater programs do. We invite you to join us and give your child his or her chance to shine!
