WESTPORT, Conn. -- Celebrate Grandparents Day with the family musical "Annie" on Saturday, Sept. 12, from 2-4:30 p.m. in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.
Sing along with songs from the show like "Tomorrow," "Easy Street" and "It’s the Hard-Knock Life." This 2014 release is a contemporary adaptation of the 1977 Broadway show. The program is free and open to the public.
To complement the singalong, materials for craft projects will be available in the Children’s Department.
"Annie" is the story of a 10-year-old Harlem foster child (played by "Beasts of the Southern Wild's" Quvenzhané Wallis) taken in by a calculating billionaire (Jamie Foxx) who's campaigning to be mayor. Abandoned by her biological parents as a baby, Annie (Wallis) spends every moment of every day attempting to avoid the wrath of her cruel foster mother, Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz).
