Overview

Legendary musical Annie returns to the West End for a limited run at the Piccadilly Theatre starring actress Meera Syal. Annie began performances on 23rd May 2017, with tickets available until February 2018.

Set in New York during the Great Depression, the gutsy young Annie is destined for a life of misery living in the Municipal Girls Orphanage under the torment of the often rather inebriated Miss Hannigan.

With nothing but an old letter from her real parents and the hope that she will one day see them again, Annie is determined to escape. Her luck changes, however, when she is picked to spend Christmas at the home of the well-known billionaire Oliver Warbucks. All that stands in her way though is the spiteful Miss Hannigan’s plans to spoil everything for her.

Packed full of a huge range of well loved songs, the award winning score includes the unforgettable songs of "It’s a Hard Knock Life", "I Don’t Need Anything But You", "Easy Street" and "Tomorrow".

Annie stars actress Meera Syal (Romeo and Juliet at the Garrick Theatre). Alex Bourne (Mamma Mia!) co-stars as Daddy Warbucks. They are joined by Holly Dale Spencer (Sweet Charity) as Grace Farrell, Jonny Fines (Grease) as Rooster and Djalenga Scott (Grease) as Lily.

Annie is directed Nikolai Foster, the Artistic Director of Leicester Curve, which is one of the UK’s most exciting regional theatres, having produced acclaimed productions such as White Christmas, The Hired Man and Beautiful Thing. Set and costume design is by Colin Richmond, with choreography by Nick Winston, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound design by Richard Brooker.

Annie first premiered on Broadway in 1977, originally based on the Harold Gray comic Little Orphan Annie and was adapted with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin and book by Thomas Meehan. The original run spanned nearly six years and since has been performed all around the world, including major West End productions in 1978, 1983 and 1998, as well as being turned into two major Hollywood films.

With a star cast, the return of Annie to the West End is set to be one of the hottest tickets of the year. Performances began on 23rd May 2017 and will continue until 6th January 2018.
