Celebrate Christmas at the Warbucks Mansion: Minnetonka Theatre Presents 'Annie'

Based on the popular comic strip, the hit musical "Annie" was turned into a 1982 movie starring Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan.

Tickets are selling quickly to Minnetonka Theatre’s annual holiday musical, presented on the Arts Center on 7 Main Stage Dec. 7-22. This year the theatre is proud to present Annie, the popular show about a favorite 1930’s heroine.

Minnetonka Theatre’s all-local cast will dazzle audiences with timeless songs, including “Tomorrow,” “It’s the Hard-Knock Life,” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”

Greta Grosch (last seen on the Arts Center on 7 stage as “Dolly Levi” in Hello, Dolly! And “The Chaperone” in The Drowsy Chaperone) will star as Miss Hannigan. Grosch, with credits at Dudley Riggs’ Brave New Workshop, Ordway, and History Theatre, is also known for her work as a scriptwriter for the Church Basement Ladies series.

Annie has been on our list of ‘must do’ shows for about 7 years, but the timing was never right,” explains Director Trent Boyum. “This year when New York producers decided to revive the show on Broadway we thought… now is the time! We can offer our patrons our own high-caliber version of Annie right here in Minnetonka. Plus, Greta was available to join us in the scene stealing role of Miss Hannigan. She will be hilarious - and a holiday hoot!"

About Annie: Set during Christmastime in 1933, little orphan Annie goes on an adventure across New York City as she escapes the evil Miss Hannigan and searches for her parents. Based on the popular comic strip, the hit musical was turned into a 1982 movie starring Carol Burnett (Hannigan).

Limited seating is still available to most shows, and advanced ticket reservations are required to ensure your seats.
