ANNIE is featured in the 2012 Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift catalogue, which was released yesterday. The $30,000 package features a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of a walk-on role in the new Broadway production of ANNIE, now in previews at the Palace Theatre (Broadway at 47th Street), and a celebratory five-star meal with one of the show’s producers. Proceeds from the sale of the package will benefit the PEDIGREE Foundation, whose mission is to help dogs in need find loving homes by providing grants to shelters and dog rescues, and The Pajama Program, which provides new pajamas and books to children in need, many waiting to be adopted. Details of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book are available at www.neimanmarcus.com.
ANNIE, the new production of the Tony Award®-winning musical, is now in previews and opens Thursday, November 8 at the Palace Theatre (Broadway at 47th Street). ANNIE features a book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin, with all three authors receiving 1977 Tony Awards® for their work. ANNIE is directed by Pulitzer Prize and three-time Tony Award®-winner James Lapine and choreographed by Tony Award®-winner Andy Blankenbuehler.
In a dual effort to promote dog adoption and provide shelters with resources, PEDIGREE® Food for Dogs and ANNIE have teamed up to help raise $1 million to help dogs find loving homes. For each ANNIE ticket sold through December 31, 2013, PEDIGREE will donate $2, up to $1 million, to PEDIGREE Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping dogs find loving homes. In addition, co-branded merchandise will be available at the theatre and online with 100 percent of the proceeds going to PEDIGREE Foundation.
