The big musical about the little orphan has been adapted into a KIDS version! With a long overdue Broadway revival beginning previews October 3rd, 2012, ANNIE continues to be one of the most beloved characters and musicals in the theatre world. And now, MTI is ecstatic to announce the release of ANNIE KIDS!
ANNIE & ANNIE JR. have been two of the most sought after titles since their release. In fact, the 60-minute ANNIE JR. was the first MTI show to be adapted for the MTI Broadway Junior Collection. And now, we could not be more excited to offer a 30-minute KIDS version of this musical theatre jewel. Intended for elementary school students, meticulous condensing, editing, and communication with the authors’ estates went into the creation of ANNIE KIDS. The show’s heart and soul is immaculately maintained through the perfect amount of dialogue and songs for elementary age students.
Little Orphan Annie has a sassy place on nearly every theatre’s list of past productions. It’s been estimated that over the past 25 years, ANNIE has been seen by over 50 million audience members worldwide! No matter the language into which ANNIE is translated, Daddy Warbucks, Miss Hannigan, Drake (who “will bring your tray”), and the entire cast of colorful characters tell a universal story of the power of positivity and the positive affect even the tiniest bit of love can have on someone’s life. Whether this is your establishments first production or 1,000th, ANNIE KIDS will enchant your audiences and thrill your young performers.
