Annie' musical shines on Civic Center

Gazette staff March 13th, 2008


Bet your bottom dollar that the sun is already out and ready to shine on America's favorite redheaded orphan: The world-renowned and hugely popular musical "Annie" returns Wednesday through Sunday to Oklahoma City as part of its 30th anniversary tour, stopping at the Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker.

Based on the celebrated Harold Gray comic strip, "Little Orphan Annie," the 1977 Broadway phenomenon spawned such musical hits such as "Tomorrow" and "It's a Hard-Knock Life."

The original production of "Annie" boasted seven Tony Awards and was nominated in 1997 for Best Musical Revival. Twice, the production has been made into a movie:
" a 1982 feature starring Albert Finney and Carol Burnett, and
" a 1999 television version with Kathy Bates and Oklahoma's own Kristen Chenoweth.

With music by Charles Strouse, book by Thomas Meehan, and directed by original lyricist Martin Charnin, this touring "Annie" is the same irresistible and charming tale, ready to warm the hearts of a whole new generation.
Join Annie, Daddy Warbucks and Miss Hannigan to relive this timeless classic. Leapin' lizards! Show times vary; tickets are $16-$48. For more information, call 297-2264 or visit their site.
