Youth musical ‘Annie, Jr.’ opening at Carson City Brewery Arts Center

“Annie, Jr.” by Wild Horse Children’s Theater plays this and next weekend in the Performance Hall of the Brewery Arts Center, 511 W. King St.

Based on the Broadway favorite and well-known comic strip, “Annie, Jr.” recounts the adventures of a spunky Depression-era orphan (Annie) determined to find her parents who abandoned her on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage, run by the sinister Miss Hannigan. Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Roosevelt and finds a new family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Among the many familiar musical numbers are “Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile” and “Tomorrow.”

Performances will be at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and students and $5 for ages 4-12. Get them at http://www.wildhorsetheater.com or by calling 775-440-1170.
