Leapin' Lizards! The popular comic strip heroine Little Orphan Annie takes center stage in ANNIE KIDS, an adaptation of one of the world's best-loved and most-performed musicals. With pluck and positivity, Annie charms everyone she meets despite a next-to-nothing start in the Depression-era New York City of the 1930s. She is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. When billionaire Oliver Warbucks decides to invite an orphan to his mansion for Christmas, Annie gets her chance to experience NYC anew, outside the confines of the orphanage. Despite Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, Annie befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new home alongside Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. The bright, tuneful score is filled with familiar numbers like "It's the Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow."
