Synopsis

The story of ‘Annie’ begins in Ms. Hannigan’s orphanage for girls, where Annie finds herself growing up after being left on the doorstep of the orphanage as a young baby. Annie is desperate to find her parents and is always running away and getting in trouble with the orphanage’s cruel and greedy owner, Ms. Hannigan!

Annie’s luck changes one day when Grace, secretary to the Billionaire businessman Oliver Warbucks, comes to the orphanage to invite an orphan to stay in Mr. Warbuck’s mansion for 2 weeks! Annie is chosen and can’t believe her luck when she sees where she will be staying! After a rocky start, Annie and Mr. Warbucks become the best of friends and Mr. Warbucks asks Annie if she would like to become a permanent member of the Warbucks family. However, Annie longs to find her real parents and Mr. Warbucks promises to help her.  

Following the announcement by Mr. Warbucks on the radio that he will give Annie’s parents 50,000 dollars, if they can prove that they are her real parents, the Warbucks mansion is soon overflowing with people claiming to be Annie’s real Mum and Dad! Ms. Hannigan’s greed and jealousy leads her to concoct a plan with her convict brother, Rooster, and his light-fingered girlfriend, Lily, to cheat Mr. Warbucks out of his 50,000 dollars! They will pretend to be Annie’s real parents! They turn up to the Warbucks mansion with the proof they need.

Will Annie be trapped with the evil Ms. Hannigan and her cronies forever? Or will Annie and Mr. Warbucks find what was missing all along…?
