The award winning Felixstowe Musical Theatre are back this summer with an amazing production of the all time classic ‘Annie’.
Set in New York in the 30’s, Annie lives in an orphanage run by Miss Hannigan who is a sleazy, fairly unpleasant character. Annie was left as a baby with a letter saying her parents would return for her one day, and the thought of this keeps her going! However sometimes she runs away to try and find them for herself.
One day after escaping for a while, and finding a dog, she is returned by a policeman and is about to be punished by Miss Hannigan when Grace Farrell arrives. She is the secretary to Mr. Warbucks the millionaire. He wishes to give an orphan a holiday in his grand home for Christmas, and Grace chooses Annie.
Annie is immediately loved by everyone, including Warbucks, who asks her if she would like to be adopted by him. Although Annie tells him she would love to stay she is waiting to be reunited with her real mother and father. Warbucks then tries to help Annie find her parents by offering a reward for them to come forward.
When Miss Hannigan hears of this she hatches a plan with her brother Rooster, who is a rogue, and he, along with his girlfriend Lily, pretend to be Annie’s long lost parents. However their plan is foiled and of course Annie ends up living happily ever after with Warbucks (having eventually found out that her real parents had died many years before).
With world renowned songs such as ‘Tomorrow’, Hard knock Life’ and ‘ Fully Dressed’ this production promises to have something in it for everyone and will be a fantastic few hours entertainment for all the family.
Annie is at the Spa Pavilion Theatre, Felixstowe from Thursday 14th until Saturday 16th June, with nightly performances at 7.30pm and a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
Tickets are available by calling the Spa Pavilion Theatre box Office on 01394 282126 and are £12 and £10 concessions with group booking discounts available.
