An Ordway Original
Leapin’ lizards! Annie is coming to the Ordway! One of the best-loved musicals of all time brings to life the extraordinary story of an orphan who ends up in the lap of luxury. Driven by her eternal optimism and spunky demeanor, Annie and her dog Sandy greet presidents, escape the clutches of the greedy Miss Hannigan, and search for a family to call their own.
Filled with unforgettable songs like “It’s the Hard-Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” and “Tomorrow,” you won’t want to miss this revival of a classic, timeless tale!
Generous support for Ordway Originals is provided by Marcia L. Morris.
Twin Cities and Ordway fan favorite Lori Dokken provides festive musical accompaniment before the show and during intermission for every performance.
