ABOUT THE SHOW

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations... and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including "Tomorrow."

If you buy tickets to our show, you will see the show!

 

It is our hope that all of StoryBook Theatre's 2020/21 Shows will be presented live at our home theatre, Beddington Theatre Arts Centre, under the most-current group gathering recommendations. As the provincial and municipal guidelines for public gatherings, and socialization shift and adjust, we are ready and prepared to do the same, moving closer and closer to bringing our community back together again and do what we do best.

Should group gatherings not be permitted during the dates of the show,  the show will be offered in an online streaming presentation.  

 

StoryBook will confirm the method of presenting 30 days prior to opening night by email.  Changes to the means in which the production is presented will not merit a refund or exchange.  Please see our policies for more information.
