It’s a hard knock life sometimes for all of us. With bills to pay and clever Instagram hashtags to formulate, life can sometimes get pretty stressful. Not as stressful however it seems as a young New Yorker living through The Great Depression in the early 20th century whilst, naturally, singing about it every step of the way.
Yes, you got it – Annie. This beloved family musical is setting its sights on the Grand Theatre this April, to delight audiences with such classics as: Tomorrow, I Don’t Need Anything But You and Easy Street. The classical story is so well loved that it has been refashioned into three separate films, proving what a timeless classic it really is.
Lesley Joseph, star of Birds of a Feather, is portraying the original matriarchal villain Miss Hannigan, who runs the orphanage where Annie spends her days. After millionaire Oliver Warbucks promises to help Annie find her parents, Miss Hannigan wages a wicked plan to stop her in her tracks. During this time there will be of course plenty of singing and dancing because, you know, what is any evil plan without singing and dancing?
With its award winning book and score, this timeless tale of the search for a place to call home is one that is not to be missed this Easter. No matter who you are, you can bet your bottom dollar that this show will leave you smiling, laughing and dancing through the aisles as you cheer on the pint-sized heroine every dance step of the way.
