ANNIE THE MUSICAL
The Scranton High School Knight Players proudly present the Broadway musical monster-hit Annie March 15-19, 2013 at the Scranton High School Performing Arts Theatre. Annie is one of Broadway's longest running shows ever, full of great songs and the delightfully heart-warming tale of the Depression-era orphan girl who finds happiness with a grouchy millionaire and his loving Gal.
Originally opening on Broadway in 1977 and running for an amazing 2,377 performances, Annie is based on the beloved comic strip that debuted in 1924. It's a big-hearted musical for the whole family, complete with adorable orphans, a loveable dog, lots of great singing and dancing, a live radio broadcast, a Christmas party, all of New York City on one stage (well, almost), and a happy ending for everybody.
When Annie first opened on Broadway, Clive Barnes said in the New York Times, "Annie is an intensely likeable musical. You might even call it lovable." Douglas Watt in the Daily News called it a "big, splashy, sentimental, old-fashioned musical." And Martin Gottfried of the New York Post wrote, "Annie is at the heart of musical comedy; big, warmhearted, funny, and over-flowing with spirit." The show has music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and a book by Thomas Meehan.
Annie is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
