Annie kicks off month-long theatrical run in Singapore

ANNIE, a Broadway and West End classic featuring everyone’s favourite little redhead orphan, premiered yesterday at the Sands Theater, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Inspired by the Little Orphan Annie comic strip that first ran in the New York News in 1924, this uplifting rendition of Annie’s rags-to-riches journey from a New York orphanage to the home of billionaire businessman Oliver Warbucks features a 52-strong cast and company.

Scheduled to run till August 5, the musical showcases British comedy star Su Pollard as the scheming Miss Hannigan, and UK stage veteran David McAlister as Daddy Warbucks, whose heart is softened by the young orphan Annie, played alternately by three young actresses from the UK.

The show also boasts one of Broadway’s most memorable scores, with favourites such as Tomorrow, It’s The Hard Knock Life, You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile, and Easy Street.

“Annie is one of the major productions that Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, in partnership with BASE Entertainment Asia, is bringing to Singapore (TTG Asia e-Daily, March 27, 2012),” said James Cundall, chief executive of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions.

“I am absolutely delighted to be able to bring not only such a legendary Broadway musical to this city, but a cast of such calibre as well. I’m sure local audiences will give them a very warm welcome.”

Ticket prices for the show range from S$68 (US$51) to S$178, including a S$3 booking fee per ticket.
