Why See Annie?

You're never fully dressed without a smile!

The wonderful and heart-warming tale of little orphan Annie is on tour and comes to Toyota Center in Kennewick, WA , Closed February 3, 2017 Catch this life affirming and acclaimed Tony-winning production that promises to fill you with sunshine, with hit classics 'Tomorrow, 'Hard Knock Life' and many more.

Since its Broadway premiere in 1977, Annie has delighted audiences worldwide and its a particular favourite of children who love Annie's cheeky demeanour and her bubbly outlook. This brand new national tour sees talented nine-year old actress Issie Swickle taking on the title role.

From rags to riches...

It's a hard knock life for Annie and the other orphans of Depression Era New York City, under the patronage of the wretched and scheming Miss Hannigan at the Hudson Street Orphanage. One day, Annie's life is changed for ever when Grace, the beautiful assistant of the enigmatic millionaire Oscar (Daddy) Warbucks comes to ask for an orphan to stay at his mansion for the Christmas holidays.

This begins a wild and mad-cap adventure where Annie's bright and shining personality wins over the crochety business and teaches him the meaning of love, life and looking on the bright side.
