Determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan, Annie charms everyone she meets with pluck and positivity, despite a next-to-nothing start in the Depression-era New York City of the 1930s. When billionaire Oliver Warbucks decides to invite an orphan to his mansion for Christmas, Annie gets her chance to experience NYC anew outside the confines of the orphanage. Tickets on sale now at the Pavilion for $10. $12 at the door.
