In the depths of the 1930's, Annie is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy munitions industrialist, Oliver Warbucks. Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks cannot help but learn to love this wonderful girl. He decides to help Annie find her long lost parents by offering a reward if they would come to him and prove their identity. However, Miss Hannigan, her evil brother, Rooster, and a female accomplice, plan to impersonate those people to get the reward for themselves which put Annie in great danger. Written by

This is the first musical I've ever watched, and I must say that I compare all musical productions with this one from then on. I've never seen the original play, but I feel that the production was pretty splendid, and the casting of the girls were quite good. Though young, they all seem to be able to sing in tune and beautifully, and I just love the way Burnett acts as Miss Hannigan - a kind and non-violent kind of 'eveilness'. Overall, this is a superb production with an excellent musical score - I seldom buy movie soundtracks, but this was one where I enjoyed every single song, and can even sing some of them today despite having last watched the movie on video many years ago.
