The tale of a red headed 11 year old girl with plenty of attitude who is forced to live a life of misery and torment at Miss Hannigan's orphanage.

Set in New York during the Great Depression in the 1930's her luck changes when she is chosen to spend Christmas with Oliver Warbucks a famous billionaire - however, Miss Hannigan has other ideas formulating a plan to destroy Annie's search for her true family.

Star of screen and stage Anita Dobson delights the audience as the alcoholic matron.

Daddy Warbucks (Alex Bourne) is totally believeable when he says 'he will do what it takes to find Annie's parents' and has a touching chemistry with Annie whilst Grace Farrell (Carolyn Maitland) is cast perfectly her warmth and caring nature shining through.

Talented young actor Freya Yates as Annie was accomplished and self assured with her acting and singing, her renditions of Tomorrow and Maybe were hugely enjoyable.

Five year old labradoodle Amber as Sandy melted the hearts of everyone - as we left the theatre we saw her walking the streets of Bristol with her owners.

Annie's orphan friends were full of personality, all singing, all dancing - what rays of sunshine.

Annie, seen on stage for the first time in 1976 a heart warming rags to riches musical brought to you by a terrific cast, a super family show.
