'Annie' to play Lied Nov. 6-7

The classic musical "Annie" - celebrating with a 30th anniversary tour - will play the Lied Center for Performing Arts Nov. 6-7.

"Annie" includes music by Charles Strouse and is directed by lyricist Martin Charmin, who brought the show's original production to Broadway in 1977. The production features a fresh look with sets by Tony Award-winning designer Ming Cho Lee.

The original Broadway production of "Annie" won seven 1977 Tony Awards, including best musical, book and score. It ran for 2,377 performances, and has been produced all over the world.

The original production is one of the top 20 longest-running shows in Broadway history, and "Annie" continues to be one of the most successful musicals ever.

The score includes "It's a Hard-Knock Life," "Easy Street," "N.Y.C.," and "Tomorrow."

Pre-performance talks will be presented 30 minutes prior to each show time in the Lied's Steinhart Room. Speakers will be Sandy Van Pelt and Angie Onuoha. Seating is limited.

Tickets are $50, $45 and $40. UNL students with a valid NCard and youth age 18 and younger may purchase tickets for half price. For more information, go online to or call 472-4747 or 800-432-3231.
