Bonus (Tonight’s Ticket)

If you missed the national touring performance of this show in Fayetteville last year, here is another opportunity to see the very same production, with the same set and cast.

Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage, Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real mom and dad instead.

Warbucks’ whopping reward for Annie’s parents attracts the attention of con artists who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and take the $50,000 reward. But don’t fret: This classic family musical has a happy ending for Annie, Daddy Warbucks and the whole gang.

The world’s best-loved musical returns in time-honored form. Featuring unforgettable songs such as “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” and the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.”

The show is presented by the Alma Education and Arts Foundation.
