Described by her creator as “tougher than hell, with a heart of gold and a fast left,” Little Orphan Annie
has been beloved by American comics readers for generations. In 1971, when musical director and lyricist Martin Charnin
picked up a collection of Annie comics, a dream was born to take the spunky young scrapper to the stage. Get Broadway
The story of Annie begins with the beleaguered girl leaving her orphanage, soon after getting herself into adventure after
adventure, with her loyal dog Sandy at her side. Her foster father, the zillionaire Daddy Warbucks, is the perfect role model
for her, being determined and headstrong himself. He often swoops in to rescue her from dangerous situations.
Annie was a hit on Broadway when it finally premiered, spawning a sequel (Annie 2: Miss Hannigan’s Revenge) and
becoming one of the favorite musicals in the country for generations to come. Now, Raleigh residents can turn to the Progress
Energy Center Raleigh Memorial Auditorium to get their fix of these wonderful songs. Get Annie
