The Hollywood Bowl celebrates one of the longest-running shows in Broadway history — Annie! This classic story of a young girl overcoming adversity features a beloved score of hits (including "Tomorrow" and "It's the Hard Knock Life") and is a delightful experience for the entire family!
It's the heartwarming "rhythm and boos" musical comedy offering a new twist on what makes a hero and how legends are made. Boo the villain and cheer the heroine in the true spirit of the American melodrama. Annie Oakley was a champion for women's rights as far back as 1898, and now she's back, coming to the aid of a single mom and her daughters struggling to find a balance between the bottom-line temptations of modern living and the comforting roots of tradition. Should Annie's Place, passed down through the generations of women in Kat's family, become the newfangled Princess Café? Is the "out with the old, in with new" mentality the right one? Should princesses replace cowgirls? Or is there a way to unite the old and the new? Audiences ages 2 to 102 help Annie, Kat, and her girls hold their own against smarmy villain Marvin Q. Moneypots and create a whole new family tradition. Birthday parties are available with every show.
Adapted from Daniel Wallace's novel and Tim Burton's acclaimed film, and featuring spine-tinglingly beautiful music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family and The Wild Party), Big Fish is a fantastical musical that illustrates the larger-than-life anecdotes of Edward Bloom, a man nearing the end of his life. This fact has compelled his grown son Will to embark on an adventure of his own — to unravel his real dad from the myths of his tall tales. Filled with magic, love, luck, and crazy coincidences, this rollicking fantasy set in the American South is a tribute to the power of dreaming big.
Recommendation for all ages.

Audiences of all ages will be thrilled by the brilliant eye-popping colors, infectious music, and beloved story.

With James and life-size insects (boasting larger-than-life personalities) at its center, the peach falls from the tree, rolling into the nearby ocean. The new cohabitants from very different communities must face that problem and even bigger ones — hunger, dangerous foes, and learning how to communicate when facing challenging decisions.
