Watertown Lyric Theater presents the musical Annie Nov. 8-10 at Dulles State Office Building

WATERTOWN, NY – With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan.

With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations… and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including “Tomorrow.”

Performances are Thursday, November 8 through Saturday, November 10 at 7 pm and Saturday, November 10 at 1pm.  General admission tickets are $15, Students, Seniors and Military $12, and children 10 and under $10.  Tickets are available from Sherwood Florist on Washington Street, cast members, online at watertownlyrictheater.org or at the door one hour prior to curtain
