CAP Summer Musical - Annie Warbucks
Annie Ain't Just Annie Anymore!
"Annie Warbucks" is the family favorite musical where the excitement picks up right where the first musical, "Annie," left off! A child welfare commissioner 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. Warbucks performs a whirlwind search for a fitting bride, while a mysterious plot to steal his fortune ensues! This fun filled musical was created by the same gentlemen that brought you the original "Annie," book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Martin Charnin.
July 21 and 22  at  8 p.m.  and  July 23 at 3 p.m.
George Prinzing Auditorium, Washington Street Education Center,  500 Washington Street, Chelsea, MI
Tickets $15 general admission; available in advance at Chelsea Pharmacy (1125 South Main St.) or at the door.
