BEACH HAVEN, NJ – Based on the popular comic strip, Annie tells the extraordinary story of a little orphan who ends up in the lap of luxury with Depression-era billionaire Oliver Warbucks. Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage, spunky Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real mom and dad instead, and he agrees. Warbucks’ whopping reward for Annie’s parents attracts the attention of con artists Rooster, Lily and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and take the $50,000 reward. But don’t fret: This classic family musical has a happy ending for Annie, Daddy Warbucks and the whole gang.
By the way, what happened to the girl who played Annie in the 1980s hit movie?
According to Hello Magazine, Aileen Quinn is alive and well, here in New Jersey, “Aileen now works as a theatre professor at Monmouth University in New Jersey, and is also the leading lady of Los Angeles-based rock band The Leapin’ Lizards.
