1985 - 1986

Annie

The story is set in New York, Christmastime, 1933. Annie was left on the steps of the Municipal Orphanage with half a silver locket around her neck and a note saying her parents would someday return for her. She decides to run away from the mean-tempered Miss Hannigan, who runs the Orphanage, and find her parents. Along the way she befriends a stray dog whom she calls Sandy. But their friendship is short-lived; Annie is found by the police and returned to face Miss Hannigan's wrath. 


She is saved by the arrival of Miss Grace Farrell, who has been sent to the Orphanage by billionaire industrialist Oliver Warbucks to select an orphan to spend Christmas with him. Grace chooses Annie. Warbucks is so taken with Annie he decides to adopt her, but before he can bring the subject up with her, she tells him the story of her locket and that she is desperate to find her parents. Warbucks offers $50,000 to anyone who can prove they are Annie's parents. Miss Hannigan, assisted by her crooked brother, Rooster, and his girlfriend, Lily, hatches a plot to get the reward money. None of the hundreds of couples that turn up know the secret of the locket except one - "Mr. and Mrs. Mudge"...
