Annie (Alicia Morton) is the optimistic orphan whose life is about to take a turn for the better thanks to billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Victor Garber). Based on this classic comic strip "Little Orphan Annie," this charming musical follows Annie as she looks for her parents and finds her way into the hearts of everyone she meets -- except cruel orphanage matron Miss Hannigan (Kathy Bates), that is! This TV-movie production hits all the high notes.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Annie finds out that her parents are dead, which could be emotionally intense for some children, and young children are advised to stay away, as Miss Hannigan's villainy may be a bit scary for them. Grade school kids might get antsy during the songs, but they'll love spunky Annie and her cute dog Sandy. The plight of 11-year-old Annie will captivate many preteens.
