‘Annie’ Now at the Walnut Street Theatre
Get ready for a holiday season belting "Tomorrow," thanks to this classic show.
Set in 1930s New York City, Annie is a sassy orphan on the search for her true home. When Annie befriends billionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, her adventures continue through music and dance to warm the hearts of all ages.
The show made its Broadway debut in 1977, and with three film versions of the story, it’s proven to be a timeless tale of love, adventure, and staying positive in hard times. Annie won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in 1977, with hits such as “It’s the Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow” becoming some of the most well-known numbers in contemporary musical history.
The Walnut Street Theatre, now in its 290th season, is an intimate setting, with only 1,100 seats, none of which are further than 80 feet from the stage. Annie also features a Children’s Ensemble, filled with young actors from the Philadelphia area and students of the Theatre School at the Walnut Street Theatre, to inspire the aspiring star in your family to possibly pursue their dreams of being on the stage too.
Tickets are currently on sale, and while previews for the show begin November 7, opening night is November 15. Shows are Tuesday through Sunday evenings at 8 pm, with special matinee performances on weekends and select weekdays. Prices range from $20 to $97, depending on seat location and show time.
