MORE INFO: Called “one of the best family musicals ever penned!” by Chicago Tribune, Little Orphan Annie has reminded generations of theatergoers that sunshine is always right around the corner, and now the best-loved musical of all time is set to return in this new production – just as you remember it and just when we need it most. This celebration of family, optimism, and the American spirit remains the ultimate cure for all the hard knocks life throws your way. Animals in the National Tour of Annie are trained by William Berloni Theatrical Animals, Inc. Berloni received a 2011 Tony Honoree for Excellence in Theatre, and he found and adopted the original Sandy for the original Annie production. Since then, all the animals Bill trains are rescues. 

This event is a part of the Kimmel Cultural Campus’ Family Fundays programEntertain your littlest art lovers at the Plaza! Ignite imaginations with an array of enchanting performances and hands-on activities. Select Family Fundays events are presented in partnership with Musicopia. *Animal adoptions initiated on-site will need to be finalized at SPCA locations.

The Kimmel Cultural Campus’ Broadway series is co-presented with The Shubert Organization.
