The musical Annie made its debut on April 21, 1977. It about a cute orphan named Annie who hopes to someday find her real parents. She lives a tough life in an orphanage with other children who hope to get adopted someday because all they ever do is clean, do chores, not have enough to eat, and has nobody to love or care for them.
The themes presented are hope and living a tough life. The hope talks about that there is always a tomorrow or a possibility that things can get better and dreams will come true. The tough life theme comes from the songs that talk about the scarcity of food and how the horrible living conditions are in the city.
