OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sergeant's Flea and Tick is a proud sponsor of ANNIE, the Musical, the critically acclaimed new production of the classic musical, now playing at Broadway's legendary Palace Theatre (Broadway and 47th Street). ANNIE is the timeless story of an orphaned girl searching for her parents in New York City, with her adorable scruffy dog Sandy by her side.
"We became a sponsor of Broadway's new production of ANNIE because of its positive message about caring for animals and, of course, because we couldn't resist being part of an iconic Broadway musical that speaks to so many pet parents," said Caryn Stichler, vice president of marketing at Sergeant's. "This wonderful opportunity has allowed us to support theater that emphasizes the health and well being of pets."
Sergeant's is the official flea and tick fighter for the canine stars of ANNIE, the Musical and has been featured in The New York Times, on a Times Square billboard and in numerous other advertising venues including JFK Airport. "We're excited to promote pet health in these venues, because they reach so many pet owners," Stichler stated.
As an exclusive feature of the partnership between Sergeant's and ANNIE The Musical, Lilla Crawford, the 11-year-old actress who stars as Annie, has blogged regularly for Sergeant's pet health blog, Pet Health Central. Her posts are personal accounts of working with canine actor Sunny, the two-year-old terrier mix rescue dog who plays Sandy in the production.
Sergeant's representatives attended the October 13, 2012, performance at the Palace Theatre, where they were personally thanked on stage for their support. After the show, Sergeant's employees had the opportunity to meet some of the cast, including Sandy.
