Leapin' Lizards! The world's best-loved musical returns to Bloomington.
Holding onto hope when times are tough can take an awful lot of determination, and sometimes, an awful lot of determination comes in a surprisingly small package. Little Orphan Annie has reminded generations of theatergoers that sunshine is always right around the corner, and now the best-loved musical of all time is set to return to Bloomington in a new production—just as you remember it and just when we need it most.
Annie, directed by Jenn Thompson, features the iconic book and score, written by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse, and Martin Charnin. This celebration of family, optimism, and the American spirit remains the ultimate cure for all the hard knocks life throws your way.
Kids Night on Broadway
In addition to the performance, Annie will be IU Auditorium’s annual Kids’ Night on Broadway celebration for the 2022–2023 season. IU Auditorium is pairing up with IU Health Riley Physicians to bring crafts and creative activities for children and families to enjoy preceding each show in the IU Auditorium’s lobby when doors open at 6 p.m.
