One of the most heartwarming stories on Broadway is making its way to Fayetteville this fall.

Annie, the well-known story of the eternally optimistic, charming red-headed orphan based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strip, will be on stage at Walton Arts Center Nov. 24-29.

The show opened on Broadway in 1977, and is still one of the biggest musical hits of all time. The score includes classic songs “Maybe,” “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You” and “Tomorrow.”

The touring show coming to the Walton Arts Center next month is a brand new imagination of the iconic Tony-award winning original, and stars 10-year-old Florida access Issie Swickle in her touring debut as Annie.

Tickets to the show range from $30-$74, and are now on sale at

They could also be free, if you’re the lucky winner of the following giveaway.
