Yes, Virginia, The Musical
December 11th - December 12th, 2014
This holiday classic is based on the 1897 true story of Virginia O'Hanlon, an 8-year-old girl who inspired the most famous newspaper editorial of all time by asking, 'Is there a Santa Claus?' In 2008, Macy’s partnered with the Make-a-Wish-Foundation to create their Believe campaign based on this “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” editorial and has since adapted the story into an animated television special, a children’s book and now for the first time it is available to perform live.
May 13th-14th, 2015
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is 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. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
