Generally, it’s hard to imagine yourself jamming to a song about overworked orphans, or singing along to a number about criminals stealing a little girl’s future, but Annie and its unforgettable soundtrack still has that pull after all these years (premiering on Broadway in 1977). Get a little dose of that shining 1930s optimism during this weekend’s tour stop of the classic musical — a comedy, a thriller and a family-friendly affair all in one. Shimmy along with evil caretaker Miss Hannigan, revel in Daddy Warbucks’ riches and hopefully, come out appreciating your family and friends a little more. Remember, little orphan Annie is counting on you!
