ASU Gammage is proud to announce that the U.S. National Tour of ANNIE, now in its second smash year, will play May 4-8 at ASU Gammage in Tempe. 

I took both of my kiddos (ages 6 and 9) to see this production when it was in Tucson. We had a great time together. They loved the story and particularly Annie's dog Sandy was a huge hit. For me, it was a nostalgic experience as I remembered watching the film version many times on VHS when I was young. This time around, I really enjoyed all the live characterization, especially Miss Hannigan- she rocked it! 

Directed by original lyricist and director Martin Charnin for the 19th time, this production of ANNIE is a brand new physical incarnation of the iconic Tony Award®-winning original. 

ANNIE has a book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin. All three authors received 1977 Tony Awards® for their work. Choreography is by Liza Gennaro, who has incorporated selections from her father Peter Gennaro’s 1977 Tony Award®-winning choreography. 

 The beloved score for ANNIE includes “Maybe,” “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You” and the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.” 

Tickets are currently available through an authorized ticket seller found only at Ticketmaster.com 1-800-982-2787 and by visiting asugammage.com. Group orders may be placed by calling 480.965.6678. 

ASU Gammage is located on the main campus of Arizona State University in Tempe at Mill Avenue and Apache Boulevard. The Desert Schools Broadway Across America – Arizona series is presented by ASU Gammage, Broadway Across America. US Airways is the official airlines of ASU Gammage.
