  Annie Warbucks Synopsis and Role Descriptions
Annie Warbucks
Everyone is singing “New Deal for Christmas” on Christmas morning in 1933, when Child Welfare Commissioner Harriet Doyle (replacing the original's Miss Hannigan as the villain of the show) arrives on the scene. She informs Daddy Warbucks that he must marry within sixty days or else his newly adopted daughter, Annie, will be returned to the orphanage. Daddy Warbucks' whirlwind search for a fitting bride uncovers an evil plot by Doyle and her daughter, Sheila Kelly, to strip him of his fortune. Warbucks also realizes his true feelings for his long-time assistant, Grace Farrell. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and a gaggle of orphans who are seeking parents return to take part in the shenanigans.

Annie Warbucks is a musical with a book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Martin Charnin. A sequel to the 1977 Tony Award-winning hit Annie, based on Harold Gray's Little Orphan Annie comic strip, it begins immediately after Annie ended. In 1993, after the show’s Off-Broadway opening, The New York Times review stated, “There are plenty of laughs in the book by Thomas Meehan and the lyrics by Martin Charnin, who also functions as the remarkably clear-eyed director.  Annie Warbucks" provides enough of the familiar fun to qualify as more than a postscript. The predisposed shouldn't be disappointed, while the wary may well be won over."
