Why See Annie?
a welcome return
Leapin' lizards! Little Orphan Annie returns to the West End after nearly two decades to bring her sunshine personality to a brand new production. 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.
Meera Syal has now stepped into Craig Revel Horwood's and Miranda Hart's high heels to play Miss Hannigan. See the comedian and author strut her stuff on stage until the 27th November after so many years behind the judges table!
It's a hard Knock life
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.
