Leapin' Lizards! The irrepressible comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world's best-loved musicals. Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including "Tomorrow."
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations... and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
The season features the recently released to regional theatre’s “Mamma Mia!", featuring the music of ABBA...the nostalgia of "The Rat Pack Lounge" where Frank, Dean, and Sammy hold court, the 32nd production of "Plain and Fancy", "Happy Days" with the Fonz, Barry Manilow’s "Copacabana", "Lend Me A Tenor", and, for the first time in twenty two years, the theatre’s first revival of everyone’s favorite red head, "Annie"!
Plain and Fancy at Amish Acres is now the second longest currently running musical in America following Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera.
The season includes 280 performances from April 11 through December 31st. Plain and Fancy will run Tuesday evenings, Wednesday and Saturday matinees. All other shows are performed Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings plus matinees on Thursday and Sunday.
