The heart-warming tale of little orphan Annie, brought to life this October at The Exeter Barnfield Theatre by Exeter Little Theatre Company.
The tale of the girl deserted by her parents, and left in an orphanage presided over by the wicked Miss Hannigan, with only a broken locket and a promise that one day they will return. Luckily Annie manages to escape orphanage life when she is chosen to spend Christmas with one of America's richest men, Oliver Warbucks. Annie is delighted that with his help, the search for her parents begins!
With a musical score that will keep you singing for weeks. A wonderfully enjoyable experience you won't want to miss!
