If you've ever fallen around laughing at the antics of the marvellous Miranda Hart on TV, you'll love this. She's all set to take on the role of the spiteful, evil Miss Hannigan in the latest stage production of the legendary musical, Annie. As you can imagine the excitement is already mounting, partly because of Hart's involvement and partly because Annie is – and has always been – such a well-loved show. The story is inspired by the original American cartoon strip, Little Orphan Annie, and it's a tale that never goes out of style. Expect rags to riches, plenty of tricky difficulties to overcome, brilliant characters, great show tunes and an ending you'll never forget.
What's the plot? Young Annie is struggling to survive at the miserable orphanage run by horrible Miss Hannigan. But her life is about to change. When she's picked to spend a luxurious Christmas with the billionaire Oliver Warbucks, everyone falls in love with her. But Miss Hannigan tries her very best to ruin everything for Annie, desperate to grab some of the Warbucks dollars for herself. The book is by Thomas Meehan, the music from Charles Strouse, the lyrics by Martin Charnin and Nikolai Foster directs. Add sets and costumes by Colin Richmond, choreography by Nick Winston, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Richard Brooker and orchestration and musical direction by George Dyer and it's a legend in the making. Don't miss it!
