Leapin’ Lizards! The irrepressible comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.
This licensed orchestration is based on the 2004 US National Tour production.
This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Piano/Conductor book. There are two keyboard books in this show but only Key 2 has any programming.
Keyboard 2 is lightly programmed and can be done without renting the programming if you have access to a modern keyboard with the following sounds: timpani, cello, glock, bells, xylophone, harp, celeste, chamber strings, tremolo strings, ensemble strings, high strings, vibes, chimes, celeste, and harp. Otherwise, KeyboardTEK has recreated the programming from the original sound sources used on the US National Tour in an easy-to-use MainStage file that can be loaded onto any Apple Mac computer.

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including “Tomorrow.”
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations… and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
