THE STORY: The story revolves around Annie, an 11-year-old orphan who longs for her parents to rescue her from the Municipal Orphanage and its mean-spirited matron, Miss Hannigan.  As a publicity campaign billionaire, Oliver Warbucks places her in the lap of luxury.  Annie's stay turns out to be much more than anyone had bargained for.
