Leapin' lizards! This beloved story of a plucky young orphan girl adopted by a wealthy businessman ran for nearly six years on Broadway and won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Actors' Conservatory Theatre's all-youth cast brings the iconic characters to life, including the adorable orphan herself, the lovable Daddy Warbucks, the wicked Miss Hannigan and the conniving Rooster and Lily. Annie Jr. is a pared-down children's theater production for youngsters and features one of Broadway's most memorable scores, including the song "It's the Hard-Knock Life" and the ever-optimistic "Tomorrow."

This was an amazing show! I enjoyed everything - from the well choreographed dance routines to the song selection. There was a great mix of old favorites and tunes that I had not heard before.... The cast was terrific....and boy, can they belt out the tunes!

This was a great play.....ALL of the cast was unique and special in their own ways..........their talents combined was just awesome. I'd go see this play with this cast again and again. I'm sure other performers could do a good job but these...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Leiber and Stoller are the Rodgers and Hammerstein of rock’n’roll.”_ _—Cousin Brucie, WCBS-FM
“To the baby-boom generation, the songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller are as sacrosanct as George Gershwin is to their parents.” _ —The New York Times_
Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock ‘n’ roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized ’50s setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions.
Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, these classic tunes defined the golden age of rock with hits from Elvis, the Drifters, Dion, the Coasters, Ben E. King and many other pop legends. Smokey Joe’s Cafe isn’t just great pop music — it’s compelling musical theatre.
