“Annie” began as a popular comic strip before taking center stage as one of the world’s best-loved musicals. Little orphan Annie is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous and magical world of NYC. In adventure after adventure, Annie finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, “All Shook Up” is the new musical that follows a a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets. This hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy will have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
