It’s coming up to Christmas in 1930s New York and feisty young orphan Annie is stuck in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. A chance encounter gives Annie the chance to escape and live with wealthy Oliver Warbucks. But will Annie’s luck run out and the evil Miss Hannigan catch up with her? Featuring all-time favourite songs ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Hard Knock Life’ and ‘NYC’, Annie is THE family Christmas Show.
Music by Charles Strouse, book by Thomas Meehan, lyrics by Martin Charnin. An amateur production by arrangement with Joseph Weinberger Ltd on behalf Music Theatre International of New York.

The show features a cast of stars of the West End including Shona Lindsay. When Shona first played Christine in The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London (for 18 months) she was the youngest actress in the world to do so. Prior to returning to the role for another 10 month season, Shona starred as Sandy in the hugely successful West End production of Grease at the Dominion and Cambridge Theatres. Jenna Boyd has performed in The Sound of Music, I Can’t Sing, Les Miserables and most recently as Adele in Harry Hill’s Stars in Their Eyes for ITV. Lauren Varnham has performed in such West End hits as Hairspray, Carousel and High School Musical. However, she is probably best known for her roles in the Queen musical We Will Rock You. Jamie Capewell’s wide ranging CV includes international tours of Starlight Express and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.*
