Runaway Stage Presents ANNIE at the 24th Street Theatre, 11/9-12/2
Little Orphan Annie will take to the 24th Street Theatre stage November 9 through December 2.

With the help of her delightful fellow orphans, she foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations and discovers the true meaning of family. Musical highlights include “Tomorrow,” “Easy Street,” “N.Y.C.” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”
