Everyone invited to save an animal from “A Hard Knock Life” in Dreyfoos Lobby before the show
 
WEST PALM BEACH, FL (February 27, 2017) The four-legged star of one of the most beloved family musicals of all time is the inspiration behind an upcoming pet adoption at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. The Tony™ Award winning production of ANNIE takes the Kravis Center stage Thursday, March 2 at 8 pm. Prior to the one-night-only performance, Palm Beach County Animal Care Control, Big and Little Dog Ranch Rescue and Amber’s Animal Outreach will have their own furry “orphans” available for adoption and looking for a better “Tomorrow.”
 
Appearing on stage in the production of ANNIE is “Sandy,” the stray dog who is rescued by the feisty, titular orphan. The starring canine is actually performed by two dogs, Macy and Sunny, who were both rescued by the show’s animal trainer, William Berloni. Based on the popular Harold Gray comic strip Little Orphan Annie, this brand new incarnation of the Broadway smash is directed by original lyricist and director Martin Charnin and choreographed by Liza Gennaro. Featuring such favorites as It’s a Hard Knock Life and I Don’t Need Anything But You, this curly-haired classic reminds us that there’s always Tomorrow.
 
ANNIE is sponsored by John D. Herrick. The Tony™ Award-winning production of ANNIE takes the stage Thursday, March 2 at 8 pm. The “Sandy” pet adoption event begins in the Dreyfoos Lobby at 6:30 pm. Tickets start at $30 and may be purchased at the Kravis Center Box Office located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach, on-line at the Official Kravis Center website www.kravis.org, or by calling the Box Office at 561-832-7469.
