Orphans! The Improvised Orphan Musical follows a ragtag group of grime-streaked and adorable orphaned kids and teens at the turn of the 20th century as they navigate a filthy industrial world filled with snarling coppers, careless caregivers, and vengeful villains.
Orphans! follows very much in the footsteps of beloved stage and cinematic musicals like Annie, OLIVER!, and Newsies.
Every performance will feature a different big city and new orphan occupation (see the inspiring line-up below) and of course, each show is completely improvised on-the-spot, *including* the high-energy song and dance numbers.
