CTC made the heartbreaking decision to cancel our performances of Annie on Saturday, January 8, and Sunday, January 9, due to breakthrough cases of COVID within our cast. The safety of our cast, staff, and audience is our highest priority which is why we have made this difficult decision.

We are so very sorry that you will miss this beautiful production and hope you will instead join us for Bina’s Six Apples, Something Happened In Our Town, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the Musical.

If you hold tickets for any of the canceled Annie performances, you can review your options by logging into your account and clicking “Manage My Tickets”, or you can call the Ticket Office at 612.874.0400, Wednesday through Friday, 2pm to 6pm.

We thank you so much for making theatre a part of your life. We sincerely apologize for this change and appreciate your patience, understanding, and partnership during this time.

Times are tough, spirits are low, and the world is in dire need of hope. Enter, stage left: a delightful underdog—a good-natured, yet mischievously feisty, young girl. She takes on the world and, with an equal share of moxie and music, unlocks hearts and changes lives through kindness, love, and spirit. Like Annie and Daddy Warbucks sing, The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!

Three Things to Know About the Show


  1. Annie is set in the 1930s, a time of great change in America, including the Great Depression and President Roosevelt’s New Deal.
  2. Parts of Annie take place in an orphanage, which no longer exist in the United States. Now foster care is the most common form of support for children awaiting adoption.
  3. Annie became a Broadway musical in 1977, running for six years and winning several Tony® Awards, including Best Musical.
Peter Rothstein

Annie is, without question, one of the truly great American musicals. It is set in the Great Depression and the young hero of the story, offers a profound voice of hope, determination, and optimism. The musical is also a celebration of non-traditional and chosen families. I hope audiences young and old are captivated by her spunk, her charm, and her wisdom.”

– Director Peter Rothstein
