“Annie” at Florham Park Players

Music by Charles Strouse
Lyrics by Martin Charnin
Book by Thomas Meehan

Annie's a peppy orphan whose life at the New York City Municipal Orphanage has grown intolerable, thanks to the gin-guzzling matron Miss Hannigan. Enter billionaire Oliver Warbucks, who has decided to invite a lucky orphan to his home for the Christmas holidays. Warbucks and Annie hit it off and he decides to offer a reward to whoever can find her parents. Miss Hannigan, who has inside information on Annie, concocts a wicked plan to collect the reward using her crooked brother and his dimwitted girlfriend as accomplices. But the scheme is foiled, Warbucks adopts Annie, and along the way, Annie meets a faithful dog and inspires FDR's New Deal.
