Licensing Company: MTI
The world’s favorite Little Orphan Annie returns in the sequel to the international smash hit.
This licensed version is based on the Original 1993 Off Broadway Production.
This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Piano/Conductor score and has a total of 2 keyboard players with only Key 2 having any programming.
As mentioned, the MD/Conductor will play from the P/C and will require a very talented musician since this is a very difficult book and requires good rhythmic chops to play.
Keyboard 2 has less than 10 total instrument sounds so these are fairly easy to program on any modern synth or electronic keyboard that has onboard sounds. Otherwise, KeyboardTEK has faithfully recreated these sounds in conjunction with the some of the original music team from the Off Broadway production in an easy to use MainStage file. These sounds include xylophone, harp, piano, celeste, Pizz strings, B3 Hammond organ, and a “Cheesy” organ.

All the ingredients that made Annie so successful are here once again, with an old-fashioned romance thrown in for good measure, in Annie Warbucks! Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, return with all new laughs, romance and unforgettable songs.
The action picks up right where Annie leaves off, when Child Welfare Commissioner Harriet Doyle arrives on the scene to inform Daddy Warbucks that he must marry within 60 days so that the newly adopted Annie can have a proper mother. In the end, Daddy Warbucks’ whirlwind search for a fitting bride uncovers not only a plot by Doyle and her daughter to strip him of his fortune, but also his true feelings for Grace Farrell.
Annie Warbucks, the family-friendly musical, is a wonderful opportunity to showcase a diverse cast of characters with strong vocal and acting abilities. The show also includes a large featured ensemble, making it the perfect choice for middle schools, high schools and community theatres!
