DERRY - Leapin’ Lizards! Kids Coop Theatre is proud to present “Annie” at the Derry Opera House on November 8 and 9, where the popular comic strip heroine will take center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.

Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil plans and befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
