Inspired by the famous comic strip Little Orphan Annie which first ran in the New York News in 1924, ANNIE is set in Depression Era New York City at a time when the economy looked bleak, government seemed ineffective and the average citizen was desperate and frustrated. With its hopeful message and unwavering belief in a better tomorrow, ANNIE made its Broadway debut in April 1977 and played 2,377 performances before closing in 1983. The show won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book (Thomas Meehan), Best Original Score (music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin), and Best Choreography.
Fifty million people of all ages have been delighted by two Broadway runs of ANNIE, two Australian tours, two West End stints, five National U.S. companies, two hit movies and dozens of international productions, playing seasons all over the world. This UK production of ANNIE has been seen by over 3 million people during the last 10 years of touring to every major city in Great Britain.
The UK's hilarious star of stage and TV screen Su Pollard leads a star cast of over 40, as the dastardly gin-soaked Miss Hannigan, while David McAlister, a veteran of the West End stage and TV dramas, plays the kindly Daddy Warbucks.
With a memorable score including 'It's A Hard Knock Life', 'Easy Street' and the legendary 'Tomorrow', fantastically visual choreography, a side-splittingly funny script and of course the adorable dog Sandy, it is no surprise that ANNIE has become one of the best loved family musicals of all time.
