Musical Me Theater assembles companies of 5–17-year-old students who audition, rehearse, and perform up to three main-stage Broadway-style musicals each season. Based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strip, Annie Jr. condenses the original Annie musical into a 75-minute performance that caters to younger audiences and orchestra conductors with short attention spans. Musical Me Theater’s toddler, tween, and teen troupe tackles famous numbers and flamboyant characters, such the titular optimistic orphan, the dastardly Miss Hannigan, and the charming Daddy Warbucks, while additional children work backstage producing each program and ensuring that actors’ dressing rooms are stocked with artisanal gummy bears. Though not included with this Groupon, a prize raffle held during intermission ($1/ticket; $20/25 tickets) bestows gifts to lucky winners and donates 100% of its proceeds to the Children’s Home Society.
