Hit musical Annie coming to the Edinburgh Playhouse autumn 2019
- Becki Crossley
- 7 September 2018
New dates added to the huge UK tour
The production, put together by Michael Harrison and David Ian's enjoyed an extended run on London's West End following a 2015/16 tour of the UK. The show, which has been on stage for a staggering 43 years, continues to sell out venues times after time.
The tale is set in 1930s New York during the great depression and tells the story of iconic character Annie who lives in an orphanage run by the spiteful Miss Hannigan, who's previously been played by the likes of Miranda Hart, Craig Revel Horwood and Meera Syal.
With memorable songs like 'It's the Hard Knock Life', 'Easy Street', 'I Don't Need Anything But You' and 'Tomorrow', it's a must-see musical for all the family.
The full tour will start at Manchester Opera House on Sat 2 Feb. It visits 18 cities along the way and as well as calling at Edinburgh Playhouse, the musical will run at Glasgow's Kings Theatre from Mon 15–Sat 20 Apr 2019.
