Perry Players Theatre is proud to announce their Christmas musical, ANNIE!
Annie tells the extraordinary story of a little orphan who spends Christmas in the lap of luxury with Depression-era billionaire Oliver Warbucks. Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage, spunky Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real mom and dad instead, and he agrees. Warbucks’ whopping reward for Annie’s parents attracts the attention of con artists Rooster, Lily and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie. But don’t fret: This classic family musical has a happy ending for Annie, Daddy Warbucks, and the whole gang. Don’t miss out on the musical everyone will be talking about this holiday season! See you there!

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including “Tomorrow.”

Tickets prices range from $12.00 – $20.00 and can be purchased online at
