Leapin’ Lizards! Little Orphan Annie is hitting the Riverside!
Theatre stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, Annie charms everyone’s hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930’s New York City. She is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage, run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan, played by the sensational Amanda Muggleton (Prisoner, Hello Dolly, Shirley Valentine).
With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous and magical world of NYC where she meets billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Musical theatre star Rodney Dobson (Wicked, Miss Saigon, The Full Monty) will be playing the charismatic and sophisticated New York ‘zillionaire’ Oliver ‘Daddy’ Warbucks.
Song and dance man, Christopher Horsey (Hot Shoe Shuffle, Bootmen, Singin’ in The Rain) will play the charismatic conman Rooster, in an exclusive engagement only at Riverside.
Boasting a classic Broadway score with hit song after hit song including Tomorrow, It’s The Hard Knock Life, Maybe and Little Girls, ANNIE is a spectacular production that will delight audiences of all ages.
