Beechmont Players Present ANNIE

{Contest Closed – Congratulations go out to FFC reader, Kate. Check your email Kate. Thanks to everyone who entered.}

ANNIE has got to be one of my favorite musicals from my childhood. I grew up in the country, so didn’t have the chance to see it performed on stage, but I must have seen the film version (who doesn’t love Carol Burnett, even when she plays the villain!) at least 100 times.  And call me crazy, but while most of you probably go straight to singing, “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow,” in my head, I instantly hear Annie singing my favorite song, “It’s a Hard Knock Life.”

With all this said, we are thrilled to share that Beechmont Players will be performing ANNIE August 2 – 11 at the Anderson Center.


“Annie” is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a loveable mutt named Sandy.

If you are like us and can’t to wait to  share ANNIE with your own children, be sure to head over to to purchase tickets. Cost is $15 general admission, $12 students and seniors. Oh, and you better hurry. The Sunday, August 5th performance is already sold out!

    My favorite song is “Maybe”. I used to pretend that I was in my window singing it at night, just like Annie!

  2. Leah says

    The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow, although my friends and I did coreograph a routine to It’s a Hard Knock Life when we were little.

  3. Jenny R says

    The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow is my favorite from Annie. As a kid, my friends and I would spend our sleepovers reenacting Annie scenes. I think it was about the time the movie came out… not gonna say how long ago that was, though! ;) Would love to win these and take my boys!

  4. Rebecca S says

    I LOVED Annie as a child – I remember crying b/c I was scared when Ms Hannigan was on the screen. But my favorite memory is of my kids singing the songs and loving the movie, too!

  5. Melissa says

    My Favorite song and I sing it to my kids when they whine about things is “It’s a Hard Knock Life”

  6. Jen says

    My fave song from Annie is Hard Knock Life too. I really like all the music from Annie though. Good childhood memories! ;)

  7. Stephanie Brown Eversole says

    The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow is my fave… it’s a good thing to remember!
