Nelson Youth Theatre Company presents the irrepressible comic strip heroine in one of the world’s best-loved, award-winning musicals.
Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Annie JR. features everyone’s favourite little redhead in her very first adventure.
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930’s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s plans for her, and finds a new home and family with billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
At only an hour long, Annie JR is the perfect show to introduce young children to the world of theatre!
