The charming red-headed comic strip heroine comes to life again in The Ellen Theatre’s holiday spectacular production of “Annie,” which opens on Friday, Dec. 1 and concludes its 13 performance-run on Dec. 22.
Presented by Montana TheatreWorks (producers of “Oliver!,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “White Christmas”), this heartwarming family classic is the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and tells the story of Little orphan Annie set against the gloomy yet wondrous backdrop of New York City in the 1930s.
The original Broadway production opened in 1977 and was based upon the popular Harold Gray comic strip, and featured music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and book by Thomas Meehan.
The Ellen’s production of the all-singing, all-dancing comedy features a live 16-piece orchestra, playing some of the most popular musical theatre hits of all time, including “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Maybe,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything but You,” and the optimistic anthem, “Tomorrow.”
Visit theellentheatre.com or call (406) 585-5885 for a complete schedule of show times and ticket information. The Ellen Theatre lobby opens one hour prior to show time for refreshments.
