The play takes place in New York City where we meet our cast of lovable orphans. Annie lives in an orphanage run by the ill-tempered Miss Hannigan. Like the rest of the children, Annie doesn't like the orphanage and especially Miss Hannigan.
When Annie is chosen to spend Christmas holidays with the wealthy industrialist Oliver Warbucks, Miss Hannigan is infuriated that Annie will be spending the holidays in the lap of luxury. Mr. Warbucks is charmed by Annie's spunk and good spirits and is eager to adopt her, but Annie is convinced that one day her real parents will come back to claim her. Mr. Warbucks loves her enough to offer a fifty thousand dollar reward in the search of her parents.
That is when Miss Hannigan's con-artist brother Rooster and his girlfriend, Lily concoct a scheme to pose as Annie's long-lost parents.
Our production is a fun time for all young and old. For more information, please contact Mr. Ford 403-314-1449 ext 381162.
