Leapin’ Lizards! It’s the world’s favourite family musical!
Set in 1930s New York during The Great Depression, brave young orphan Annie is forced to live in a miserable orphanage run by the wicked Miss Hannigan. Her hard knock life takes an unexpected turn when the plucky redhead is chosen to spend a fairy tale holiday with famous billionaire industrialist, Oliver Warbucks.
With its Tony Award®-winning book and score, including the memorable songs “Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You,” and the uplifting anthem “Tomorrow,” we bet your bottom dollar you'll love it!
