Annie - The Musical
📅 30 April - 4 May 2019
Joseph Rowntree Theatre
Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a world-wide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written including "Tomorrow".
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. Tickets
In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Annie is the perfect family-friendly musical.

Song and Dance classic takes to the stage in York
Pick Me Up Theatre bring the much-loved Me and My Girl to York's Grand Opera House with a string of wonderful Noel Gay tunes including the show-stopping Lambeth Walk, one of the most joyful song and dance routines in musical theatre history.
The haughty aristocratic Hareford family are horrified to find that the long-lost heir to the earldom is cheeky Cockney geezer Bill Snibson.
The Duchess sets about trying to transform him into a "fit and proper" gentleman – but what will happen when she demands that he break up with his Lambeth girlfriend Sally?
The show was a huge hit in the West End in the 1980s, running for eight years, and its star Robert Lindsay won the Tony for best actor in a musical when it transferred to Broadway.
The musical – first staged in 1937 and given a makeover by Stephen Fry for the 80s revival – features songs including The Sun Has Got His Hat On and Leaning on a Lamp-post.
