"Warm revival of the classic Broadway musical with a winning performance by Miranda Hart"
The StageBuy Tickets
Leapin' lizards! Little Orphan Annie returns to the West End after nearly two decades to bring her sunshine personality to a brand new production starring Call The Midwife favourite Miranda Hart as her nemesis, Miss Hannigan. Heart-warming and dripping with charm and catchy songs, Annie has been an absolute classic since first appearing on stage in 1977, introducing audiences to the wily red-head and her adorable adventures.
A previous stalwart of British comedy bit parts, Hart cemented her status as one of the country's best-loved comedians with her sitcom Miranda and wowed us as the chummy Fortescue-Cholmondeley-Browne in Sunday evening drama Call the Midwife. As the nefarious Miss Hannigan, you bet she'll bring the laughs as she schemes against the ever-positive Annie and her fellow orphans!
Extra! Extra! Casting update! The one and only Craig Revel Horwood will be stepping into Hart's high heels and into the role of Miss Hannigan from September 18th, after Miranda exits on September 17th. We can't wait to see the Strictly star strut his stuff on stage after so many years behind the judges table!
Life is hard for Annie and the other orphans at the Hudson Street Orphanage in Depression-era New York City. Presided over by dastardly matron Miss Hannigan fun is hard to find until one day her life is changed for ever when Grace, the beautiful assistant of the enigmatic millionaire Oscar (Daddy) Warbucks comes to ask for an orphan to stay at his mansion for the Christmas holidays. This begins a mad-cap caper as Annie's bright and shining personality begins to win over the crotchety business man, teaching him the meaning of love, life and looking on the bright side.
