Straight from the West End stage to Canterbury, the smash-hit production of “Annie” took to the Marlowe for the first time last night.
UNIfied went to watch and were totally impressed by the all singing, all dancing cast.
The children playing the orphans alongside Annie were absolutely brilliant, being that talented and confident at such a young age is certainly something to admire.
This spectacular show stars ‘Bird’s Of A Feather’s’ Lesley Joseph as the unbearable Miss Hannigan.
Lesley Joseph put on a fabulous act, playing the role to perfection and nailing the cruel nature of the character.
We were mainly impressed by the incredibly high standard of dancing from the chorus. With the NYC tap section being the standout scene from the show by an absolute mile. It certainly left you wanting to jump out of your seat and join in!
Set in 1930’s New York during The Great Depression, the story is based around young orphan Annie who lives a live of misery at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage. When Annie’s life takes a turn as she is invited to spend Christmas with famous billionaire Oliver Warbucks, Miss Hannigan has other ideas as she tries to spoil Annie’s search for her true family.
With songs including Tomorrow, It’s The Hard-Knock Life and You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile you cannot help singing along!
The show is running from Monday 14th October to Saturday 19th October so if you still want to book your tickets for this week head to the Marlowe Theatre website.
Prices range from a bargain of £15.50 to the top priced tickets being £60.
