It was a Hard Knock Life way before Jay-Z rapped about it. We old schoolers know the original orphan gangsta was Ann-E! So, Secret Formula is representing with The Annie Sing-Along! It’s the movie musical you know and love with all the words to the songs on the screen for you and all your friends to Sing-Along with! Slap on your curly red wig, throw on that red dress with the white collar, brush down that sandy yellow dog, and get yourself to Gowanus cause we’re turning the Bell House into the hottest orphanage in town…leapin’ lizards!

This movie has an amazing cast of stars, two of whom have April birthdays: Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and Carol Burnett (The Carol Burnett Show), who gives an incredible performance as the cruel, drunk, and randy orphanage director/con-artist, Miss Hannigan. Let’s celebrate and sing about it!

Return to your slumber party days of youth as we gather once more to belt out hits like “Tomorrow,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” and of course “Hard Knock Life”. And, since Tim Curry is in it, we’ll have Rocky Horror Picture Show style interactive props and games for you to play throughout the movie along with themed cocktails (like the Dumb Dog, Rooster Juice and Warbucks Punch), drinking games (drink every time Miss Hannigan tells the kids to “shut up!”), tea time like in the Warbucks Mansion with tea and snacks, as well as contests including…
– Costume Contest – Shave your head to look like Daddy Warbucks! Dye your hair and get a perm to look like Annie! Dress up as your favorite character for a chance to win!
– Trivia Competition – Test your Annie knowledge against other superfans!
– Miss Hannigan’s Challenge – Think you’ve got what it takes to clean like an orphan? Well, grab a broom and prove it during this child labor inspired relay race. As Miss Hannigansays, “If this floor don’t shine like the top of the Chrysler Building, your backsides will.”
