“Annie” is a classic family musical based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie. It takes place during the great depression in New York City. The spunky 11-year-old Annie is the voice of hope for her fellow orphans who live under the supervision of drunken floozy Miss Hannigan. Annie’s life takes a turn when Grace Farrell, personal secretary to conservative politician and millionaire Oliver Warbucks, pays a visit looking for an orphan to improve his image by staying in their home for a week.
