Leapin' Lizards! Are you ready for an adventure?

ABC30 invites you to the Children's Musical Theaterworks presentation of "Annie Jr.," opening Friday, December 5th and running through Sunday, December 14th at Fresno's historic Veteran's Memorial Auditorium.

Join little orphan Annie on the adventure of a lifetime in one of the world's best-loved musicals featuring classic songs including, "It's the Hard Knock Life", "Maybe," and "Tomorrow." Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, little orphan Annie is determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of New York City. Along the way, she foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and even finds a new family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
