AnnieSandyFriday, July 28, 2017 Lincoln, NH – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Beloved Family Show Annie, The Musical at Jean’s Playhouse in August

Jean’s Playhouse presents Annie, The Musical written by playwright Thomas Meehan and composed by Charles Strouse.

With pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her birth parents who left her at a New York city orphanage run by the evil Miss Hannigan. Helped by her fellow orphans, Annie escapes Miss Hannigan’s orphanage and finds a new home with billionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Don’t miss out on the Jean’s Playhouse debut of local canines Cleo and Fanny as Sandy the dog!
