Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, with a beloved book and score by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie JR.features everyone’s favorite 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 1930s 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 evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

"That was an amazing show. The best I have ever seen in MKIS. As good as I have seen in the West End! Well done." Linda (HS Teacher)
"...Finally, to put all of these elements together needs someone with strong, professional hands, and, you, Mrs. Northcott, are the one with those hands. Everyone is sorry to hear that you're leaving MKIS, but going to Beijing is a good move for you and your family. And, for the last play at this school, you couldn't have made a better choice. All your hard work paid, off, and to think you did it with a brand-new baby, one who made her stage debut in her mother's arms at the end of Annie Jr.! My sincere appreciation to all of you for an entertaining two hours in the theatre." Robert Carrelli
