The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati presents ANNIE JR. at the Taft Theatre February 29 – March 9.
Based on the popular comic strip “Little Orphan Annie,” and featuring classic songs like “Tomorrow,” and “NYC,” ANNIE JR. is a heartwarming story for the entire family.
Leapin’ Lizards! America’s most charming orphan is back and spunkier than ever! With equal measures of pluck and positivity, Annie charms everyone’s hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in the “hoovervilles” of 1930s New York. She is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her eleven years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the callous Miss Hannigan. With the help the other girls in the orphanage, Annie sings and dances her way through an unforgettable Big Apple adventure, finding a new family along the way.

Saturday, Feb. 29 at 2 pm* (this performance is signed for the hearing impaired)
