Set in 1930s New York during The Great Depression, brave young Annie is forced to live a life of misery and torment at Miss Hannigan`s orphanage. Determined to find her real parents, her luck changes when she is chosen to spend Christmas at the residence of famous billionaire, Oliver Warbucks. But spiteful Miss Hannigan has other ideas and hatches a plan to spoil Annie`s search. With its award-winning book and score, this stunning musical includes the unforgettable songs ``It`s a Hard Knock Life``, ``Easy Street``, ``I Don`t Need Anything But You`` and the eternal anthem of optimism, ``Tomorrow``.
