Align Entertainment Presents Annie: The Musical

Michael J. Fox Theatre01 Feb '19 to 16 Feb '19 @ 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM
  • Align Entertainment Presents Annie: The Musical

Align Entertainment presents the cheerful escapades of little orphan Annie from February 1–16, 2019, at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby. Following the successful fall production of A Christmas Story: The Musical, the Ovation Award-winning company closes the 2018/2019 season with the story of Annie, a plucky 11-year-old overflowing with infectious optimism and curly red hair. The Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical is set against the backdrop of the Great Depression, throwing into sharp relief the beauty of the spirited character’s hopefulness in dire times. Featuring a fresh cast of young local talent, the production is a heart-warming antidote to the long grey days of winter.

The original Broadway production from 1977 is based on Harold Gray’s widely read comic strip Little Orphan Annie. The story follows the adventures of Annie, who longs to find the parents who left her as a baby on the steps of a New York City orphanage. Tired of matron Miss Hannigan’s cruelty, Annie escapes into the city and befriends the abandoned but loveable mutt Sandy. Upon her return, she is selected to spend Christmas with local billionaire Oliver Warbucks. He is soon won over by her bright outlook and even introduces her to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Along the way, Annie helps inspire the New Deal, learns the truth about her parents, and finds a loving home to call her own.

With a book by Thomas Meehan (The Producers, Hairspray) and lyrics by Charles Strouse (Bye Bye Birdie), Annie earned seven Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards. The cast show album also won a Grammy Award in 1978, featuring iconic songs like “Tomorrow” and “It’s the Hard Knock Life.” Align Entertainment’s production features a live 12-piece orchestra under the musical direction of Kevin Woo and a talented ensemble of a dozen young actors performing as orphans, who were selected from auditions by more than 100 children.
