• Produced by Arielle Tepper Madover

LEAPIN’ LIZARDS! It’s an all-new production of one of the most acclaimed musicals of the past 35 years!

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. And now, alongside her signature pal dog, Sandy, she’s set her sights on making us grin from ear to ear as she inspires a whole new millennium.

Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, ANNIE – with Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Martin Charnin, and Book by Thomas Meehan – makes its triumphant return to Broadway in a brand new production from Tony, Drama Desk and Pulitzer Prize-winning Director James Lapine and an A-list creative team.

ANNIE Teamed up with many great organizations to teach and give back to everyone who loves Broadway!

Arielle Tepper Madover the Annie Production Team and THIRTEEN formed unprecedented partnership as part of an extensive educational initiative to foster children’s interest in the performing arts.  THIRTEEN launched a comprehensive Annie website featuring quizzes, historical games, audio presentations, and video interviews with the Broadway production team.  The Web site gives children, the adults in their lives, and Annie fans everywhere an opportunity to explore the world of the musical and get an up-close look behind the scenes of a major Broadway show.

In addition to the Web site, THIRTEEN produced It’s the Hard-Knock Life: From Script to Stage, a primetime PBS special slated for broadcast in 2013.  The film followed the development of a single production number from the musical – the tuneful and rhythmic “It’s the Hard-Knock Life,”  defiantly belted out by the orphans – from the earliest phases of the creative process through Opening Night.  The film shows audiences nationwide that actors are only one part of a complex whole when it comes to a Broadway production.

Pedigree & Annie: SEE THE SHOW, HELP A DOG

In a dual effort to promote dog adoption and provide shelters with resources, PEDIGREE and ANNIE teamed up to help raise $1 million to help dogs find loving homes. For each ANNIE the Musical ticket sold through December 31, 2013, PEDIGREE donated $2, up to $1 million, to PEDIGREE Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping dogs find loving homes.
