THE heart-warming rags-to-riches musical, ANNIE, will be at The Bristol Hippodrome from Tuesday, August 11 to Saturday, August 15.

Annie’s adventures from Miss Hannigan’s orphanage to the luxurious home of Oliver Warbucks, is a story that has been told all over the world for decades. First seen on stage in 1976, the show really does deserve its reputation as one of the best loved family musicals of all time!

Star of stage and screen, Su Pollard (Hi-De-Hi,) reprises her role as the dastardly Miss Hannigan and David McAlister (Hollyoaks, Eastenders, Mike Bassett TV and Brideshead Revisited) makes a welcome return as the billionaire businessman, Oliver Warbucks.

With a memorable score including It’s A Hard Knock Life, Easy Street and of course the legendary Tomorrow, along with brilliantly visual choreography and a side-splittingly funny script, you will remember ANNIE as warm and funny as the first time you ever saw it!
