“One of the most enchanting musicals I have ever seen” – Sunday Times, UK
The show will feature a host of familiar faces from British TV and stage, and will propel local talent into the spotlight in the lead role of Annie as well as her fellow orphans.
Leading the stellar cast is the UK’s hilarious star of stage and screen, Su Pollard, and David McAlister, a veteran of the West End stage and TV dramas.
“A musical that tugs at your heartstrings”The Times, UK
Producer James Cundall, Chief Executive of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions said, “To be bringing some of the UK’s leading actors to New Zealand is a dream come true. Su Pollard became a national treasure in the UK with her performance in Hi-de-Hi!, where she demonstrated that unbelievable comedic timing which she will bring to the role of Miss Hannigan. David McAlister is a consummate star, with the most incredible array of credits spanning more than three decades and a wide spectrum of entertainment. New Zealand is in for a real treat with this incredible array of talent starring in such a popular musical.”
The show comes direct from a highly successful UK tour and features a cast of 32, including Annie and nine fellow orphans.
