TV: Annie’s Search for Sandy, From Wags to Riches. She stayed with the show on Broadway until 2014 and was with the National Tour for two years.

Annie

Annie is adapted from the classic comic strip “Little Orphan Annie” and is set in New York in 1933. Annie is a family show. Parents concerned about content and appropriateness for their families should peruse the following details.

Adult Language:

Almost none.  A few “damns” are spoken by Oliver Warbucks.

Drugs/Alcohol:

Miss Hannigan, who runs the orphanage and is the show’s chief villain, is seen drinking, sometimes from a flask, sometimes from a bottle. She tells the orphans (who are not fooled), “It’s medicine!” and is later seen suffering from a hangover.

The guests at Annie’s adoption party are served champagne.

Sexual References:

Miss Hannigan flirts with the laundry man, but he is not responsive. Later she will sing, “I’m an ordinary woman / with feelings / I’d like a man to nibble on my ear / But I’ll admit no man has bit / So how come I’m the mother of the year?”

Miss Hannigan is confronted by Rooster, her ne’er-do-well brother, accompanied by his girlfriend Lily St. Regis (named for the hotel). When Lily asks if Mr. Warbucks is “the millionaire,” Miss Hannigan responds, “No, the billionaire, you dumb ho . . . tel.”

Violence/Scariness:

Annie and Molly both indicate that their parents abandoned them; the orphans, who work on sewing machines all day, are being used for slave labor. In song, Miss Hannigan confesses she would like to wring the orphans’ necks.

As she wanders New York searching for her parents, Annie encounters homeless people, victims of the Depression, who are living in improvised shanties. She is distressed when the police break up and destroy the camp.

Rooster, who is pretending to be Annie’s father to claim a $50,000 reward, flashes a switchblade knife when asked what his plans are for her: “When the Rooster wants something to disappear, it disappears.”
