Packed with memorable music, this original Broadway show became a hit movie in 1982. The movie takes place during the depression of the 1930s. Annie is in an orphanage where the mean Miss Hannigan is in charge. A rebel, Annie acts like mother to some and leader to all. She tries to escape but is caught and brought back. She is saved when the secretary of one of the richest men in America comes to the orphanage. Annie's vacation from the orphanage turns permanent when the rich man, comically named Daddy Warbucks, realizes that she should be his daughter. Miss Hannigan and her brother Rooster plot to use Annie to get rich but, of course, the plucky orphan isn't going down without a fight.
