Holiday Production of Annie JR

Presented by Cadence Theatre

About the Event

Cadence is pleased to announce their holiday production of Annie JR. This spectacular production will feature some of Richmond’s favorite young artists

Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, with a beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie JR features everyone’s favorite orphan in her very first adventure.

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. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Annie JR lasts 90 minutes and is suitable for people of all ages! 

Annie JR is made possible through support from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, and Show Sponsors Betsy Rawles and Moran Reeves Conn Attorneys at Law.
