Bet your bottom dollar 

‘ANNIE'

7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $17-$52.

Thirty years after it debuted on Broadway (and for those who need a more recent point of reference, 10 years after Jay-Z sampled “It's a Hard-Knock Life”), “Annie” comes to Little Rock for four performances: 7:30 p.m. productions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and a 1 p.m. matinee on Thursday. The musical's lyricist, Martin Charmin, returns to direct this 30th anniversary touring production. Surely you know the gist: Indefatigable ginger-haired Annie is an 11-year-old orphan prone to song. She's stuck in an orphanage run by Miss Hannigan, who bullies and abuses and sings creepy songs about little girls and wanting a man to nibble on her ear. Then there's Daddy Warbucks, a gruff industrialist with a heart of gold and a direct line to President Roosevelt. Oh yeah, and Sandy, Annie's trusted dog of indeterminate breed, who's special enough to warrant his own song. You'll never guess what happens when they all get together.
