Annie the Musical will officially roll out the red carpet and pull back the curtain when it opens in the Lyric Theatre, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) on Thursday 12 April to a full house.
This exciting production stars Anthony Warlow, Nancye Hayes, Todd McKenney, Chloe Dallimore, Julie Goodwin and Alan Jones as President Roosevelt along with 24 local children.
There will be three cast members alternating in the roles of Annie, with the coveted role being shared by Xanthe Dunning, Anita Munro and Chloe Thiel.
Based on the popular Harold Gray comic strip, “Little Orphan Annie”, the musical Annie burst into popularity in 1977, when it opened on Broadway. After running there for nearly six years, it has played in over 22 countries worldwide including the UK, Argentina, Japan, Germany, Sweden, Spain and Australia. Annie became a smash-hit movie musical in 1982 starring Aileen Quinn, Albert Finney and Carol Burnett. The movie is adored worldwide and a fixture of popular culture references.
Annie is full of toe-tapping hits such as "It’s the Hard Knock Life", "Easy Street" and, of course, "Tomorrow".
These wonderful songs have become staples of musical theatre repertoires worldwide and now, 34 years on, it remains one of the most loved and universally appealing musicals of all time.
The show runs at QPAC for 5 weeks only.
