– AD | Press Night Invitation –
Last night we went to the theatre to watch an absolute classic Annie The Musical UK Tour at the Birmingham Hippodrome!
Set in 1930’s New York Annie, tells the story of a little red headed orphan girl housed in a run-down orphanage owned by the horrid Miss Hannigan. Mr Warbucks (a high profile billionaire) decides to take in an orphan child at Christmas and share his wealth, but when presented with Annie he becomes attached at a level he wasn’t expecting. Using his fortune he sets out to find Annie’s real parents for her with a hearty cash reward which unfortunately sparks the interest of a number of impostors and a devilish plan from Miss Hannigan herself!
This time round we had the joy of Jodie Prenger as the mean and boozy Miss Hannigan and she completely stole the show for me…even more than Sandy the dog! Jodie was made for this role and she absolutely smashed it!
The dancing, the costumes, the staging and the faultless cast really brought this classic tale to life. You must book tickets for Annie The Musical on it’s UK Tour, it’s great for all the family and guaranteed to leave you singing all the way home!
