Come out and help celebrate 100 Years of Open Air Theater at Longwood Gardens a Metro Philly Landmark.You are invited out to see full version of Annie, a Tony Award winning musical on July 24th, 25th & 26th preformed by the Brandywiners, Ltd.

Annie is a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award winning musical based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strip. When the musical debuted on Broadway in 1977, it swept up a total of 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.

The story revolves around a young orphan girl named Annie in the midst of the Great Depression. Annie lives in New York's Municipal Orphanage, Girls' Annex, run by the mean-tempered spinster Miss Agatha Hannigan. Annie dreams of one day being reunited with her parents. When the opportunity presents itself she escapes the orphanage in a laundry bag and sets out to find her parents. My wife Barbara and I have seen Annie on and off Broadway and are looking forward to the Brandywiners interpretation at Longwood Gardens.

The Brandywiners, Ltd. is one of the largest nonprofit theatrical groups in the Delaware Valley and my wife Barbara have enjoyed many of their past performances.They have been presenting high-quality musicals each summer in the spacious Open Air Theater at Longwood Gardens. Proceeds from their concerts and musical theater productions have benefited cultural, educational, and civic causes throughout the Brandywine Valley and we are proud to support their work.
