You’ve seen the film, you’ve seen the billboards and you’re humming ‘the sun’ll come out tomorrow’ right now.
From Broadway beginnings to the classic film musical, this heart-warming rags-to-riches story Annie is landing in New Zealand, and bet your bottom dollar you’ll love it.
This brilliant production features some familiar faces from the UK. Playing the devious Miss Hannigan is the lovely and hilarious star of stage and TV Su Pollard (Hi-de-Hi!), while Daddy Warbucks is played by David McAlister, a veteran of the West End stage and TV dramas (The Mousetrap, Dr Who).
Joining them is MiG Ayesa, who played the lead role in We Will Rock You in London as well as New Zealand. Frazer Hines, who’s best known for playing Joe Sugden in Emmerdale for 22 years, and has starred in 117 episodes of Dr Who. Finally two stars of the hit BBC sitcom ‘Allo ‘Allo join the cast, Sue Hodge, who and John D Collins.
The part of Annie has been cast in New Zealand to: Zoe Fifield, 13, Auckland, Amelia Walshe, 11, and Ilena Shadbolt, 12, both from Wellington. They were chosen out of 630 hopefuls. The three will alternate the role for seasons in Wellington (from Friday 23 May) and Auckland (from Friday 13 June).
