This classic musical, set in the 1930’s, is wonderful family entertainment. The inspiring message that Annie offers is hope and optimism.  

Little Orphan Annie charms everyone’s heart. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of the New York City Orphanage, that is run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. She escapes, has many adventures and even befriends Sandy a very lovable mutt.
