Musical Theatre’s favourite red-haired orphan is visiting Auckland’s Civic Theatre this month.
“Inspired by Harold Gray’s famous comic strip Little Orphan Annie which first ran in the New York News in 1924, ANNIE is set in Depression Era New York City at a time when the economy looked bleak, government seemed ineffective and the average citizen was desperate and frustrated. With its hopeful message and unwavering belief in a better tomorrow, ANNIE made its Broadway debut in April 1977 and played 2377 performances before closing in 1983. The show won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book (Thomas Meehan), Best Original Score (music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin), and Best Choreography.”
Theatre Scenes has TWO double passes to give away to the performance on Wednesday 18 June, 7:30pm. If you’d like to win them, tweet me @JamesWenley or email firstname.lastname@example.org and answer:
