Annie runs January 13 through the 18th for 8 performances. Directed by original lyricist and director Martin Charnin, this Annie is a brand new incarnation of the iconic original. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago at an orphanage run by the embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other orphans, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of New York. In a series of adventures, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and finds a new home with billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Featuring book and score by Tony Award® winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie includes such unforgettable songs as It’s the Hard Knock Life, Easy Street, and the eternal anthem of optimism, Tomorrow.
This is the perfect opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy the world’s best-loved musical while doing good for the community. Since 1966, the non-profit Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids has been dedicated to changing lives through the power of work by offering a wide range of employment and training programs to assist those with disabilities and other barriers to employment by developing marketable skills. In addition to monetary donations, revenues from nineteen retail stores in an eight-county area support the organization’s efforts.
