The Ordway is offering a revitalizing boost of positivity with Annie. Adapted from Harold Gray’s classic Little Orphan Annie comic strips of the 1920s, the musical follows the iconic title character, an inveterate dreamer who refuses to relinquish her hopes for a better life outside the grim confines of the Municipal Girls Orphanage. Through a fateful fluke, Annie is chosen to spend the holidays at the palatial home of billionaire Oliver Warbucks, an entrepreneur whose reluctance to take on a paternal role evaporates under Annie’s kindhearted charm. Under the direction of Austene Van, this original production from the Ordway will alternate Carly Gendell and Lillian Hochman in the lead with support from an impressive cast of Twin Cities performers.
