Annie first appeared on the capital's stage way back in 1977, and proved an instant hit. The show's famous charm made friends and influenced people from day one, thanks to a compelling plot studded with a string of classic show tunes including Le Girls, Easy Street, You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile and the iconic Tomorrow.
This is Nikolai Foster’s 40th anniversary production of Annie, and for Miranda Hart the role of Miss Hannigan is a dream. Hart follows in the famous footsteps of Carol Burnett, Sheila Hancock, Sue Pollard and Paul O’Grady, set to make her own unique mark on the role of one of theatre’s favourite baddies. It's set to open at the magnificent Piccadilly Theatre in early spring 2017, and it's already being tipped at this summer's biggest musical smash hit.
Directed by Nikolai Foster, the show is produced by Michael Harrison and David Ian. There's a book by Thomas Meehan, the music comes from Charles Strouse and the lyrics by Martin Charnin. The costumes come from Colin Richmond, the choreography is by Nick Winston, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound by Richard Brooker and musical direction by George Dyer. As Miranda Hart herself says, “I hope people will leave the theatre feeling life is a little better and dreamier and jollier after watching it, as much as we feel that performing it.”
What's the story? Based on the popular comic strip Little Orphan Annie, the musical follows the life of young Annie as she progresses from an unloved and neglected orphan to the beloved daughter of a billionaire. The action is set in 1930s New York, during the Great Depression, where Annie and her fellow orphans endure a miserable life thanks to Miss Hannigan, a drunk whose orphanage is a truly hellish and cruel place.
Little Annie’s luck changes fast when she's chosen to spend Xmas with the billionaire, Oliver Warbucks. He and his staff soon fall head over heels with Annie, who is feisty and full of life, but the evil Miss Hannigan and her cronies are determined to grab a slice of the billionaire's fortune. Do they succeed? Come and see for yourself. It's one of two classic musicals to hit the London stage this summer, the other being Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Miranda Hart will be playing Miss Hannigan until 17th September 2017.

The cast were very talented and the junior members did themselves proud. Good mix of humour throughout and a cast that looked like they were enjoying what they were doing

There's no bad news about the musical Annie. I absolutely love it so it’s exciting to learn that rehearsals have started and to learn a little about what we can expect when the vintage Broadway show is revived again at the Piccadilly Theatre, starring TV favourite Miranda Hart, who's best known for her role in drama Call the Midwife and for her own, much loved sit-com Miranda.Read more
