Show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and 2 p.m. Sundays. It’s 1933 and the always hopeful, 11 year old Annie and her dog Sandy are off on an adventure to find her parents. This delightful and heartwarming musical with Music by Charles Strous, lyrics by Martin Charnin and book by Thomas Meehan opened in 1977 and was nominated for 11 Tony awards and 35 years later is just as inspiring and clever as ever! Soon to be revived in New York, this is a must see musical with Broadway anthems like Maybe, NYC, Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow that are guaranteed to wipe out the pessimist in all of us!
