Who else absolutely LOVED Annie as a kid? This was one of my all-time favorite movies. So much so that I haven’t been able to bring myself to see the recent remake (even though I heard from friends it was great). I just loved the classic so much. And if you’re local to Hershey, PA like me, you’re in luck!
Annie is LIVE on stage at the Hershey Theater from July 21 to Sunday July 26 and tickets are on sale now! I was invited to opening night and sadly couldn’t make it because of a family vacation (not complaining about vacation, but would have loved to seen this show!). Fortunately I was able to send my lifelong friend and contributor to See Mom Click in my place to share her thoughts with us. She has two little girls and I got this text half way through the show:
“There’s a live orchestra, sets are amazing. Magnolia (her little girl) is mesmerized. It’s great!!”
I’ve been following along on Twitter during opening night and it’s getting rave reviews!
Tony Award-Winning production of Annie. The show will be at Hershey Theatre from Tuesday, July 21 through Sunday, July 26. Featuring book and score by Tony Award®-winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie includes such unforgettable songs as “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You,” plus the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.”
After the show I got this message:
“The show was awesome! Singing, choreography, everything was seriously great and so well-done. I know I mentioned it before but the set and backdrops were unbelievable. Highly recommend the show!”
You can check out show times and order your tickets on the Hershey Theatre website. Live theater is so much fun for kids. Don’t miss this one! (And stay tuned because there’s more coming at this absolutely gorgeous theater!)
