Fredericksburg, VAannie
Friday, October 11, 2019

Riverside Center for the Performing Arts presents the ever-popular Annie.   Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage, little orphan Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So, when billionaire Oliver Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks him to help find her real mom and dad instead.  Warbucks agrees, and his whopping reward for Annie’s parents attracts the attention of con artists Rooster, Lily, and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who concoct a plot to kidnap Annie and take the reward. Don’t fret, this classic family musical has a happy ending for Annie, Daddy Warbucks and the whole gang. Sally Struthers is set to reprise her role as Miss Hannigan from the 20th Anniversary Annie Broadway revival and National Tour. Enjoy great seating and a plated three course lunch!   $162
