Annie is a spunky, Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago at a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil plans, befriends President Franklin Roosevelt and finds a new family and home with billionaire, Oliver Warbucks,

All of Baum's loveable characters, the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Woodsman, join Dorothy on her journey to meet the greta Oz,

* March 1-2, 2013 -- "An Evening With The Masters." The dessert theater will offer highlights from some of the greatest works by composers who made American theater music what it is today, including works from Berlin, Porter, Rodgers, Hammerstein and Styne, and

* May 3-4, 2013 -- "Never Too Late." A married man in his 50s suddenly learns he's becoming a father again. His last child was born 24 years ago and he finds the prospect of another unthinkable. His daughter and son-in-law live with him and now another mouth to feed is on the way. It's not only the impending birth that startles him. His previously meek wife begins to lay down the law.
