Annie, at the Bord Gáis

Leapin lizards, the smash-hit West End production of Annie has arrived at the Bord Gáis for an almost two-week stint. Set in 1930s New York during The Great Depression, brave young Annie is forced to live a life of misery at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage. However, her luck soon changes when she’s chosen to spend a fairytale Christmas with famous billionaire, Oliver Warbucks. Meanwhile, spiteful Miss Hannigan has other ideas and hatches a plan to spoil Annie’s search for her true family… Strictly Come Dancing legend Craig Revel Horwood stars as the iconic Miss Hannigan, though it’s Paul French’s take on Rooster that really stole the show for me.
