Durban's formidable theatre production company, KickstArt start their busy year with the Broadway hit musical, Annie, at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on UKZN campus from 23 May until 15 June.
The original Broadway musical based on the comic strip, Little Orphan Annie, by Harold Gray, opened in 1977 and ran for a record breaking near-six years at the Alvin Theatre.
The rags-to-riches story of everybody's favourite orphan, Annie, features an impressive cast with Lisa Bobbert as the hilariously villainous Miss Hannigan; KickstArt's Steven Stead will be making a rare appearance on stage as Miss Hannigan's wicked brother, Daniel 'Rooster' Hannigan; Iain Ewok Robinson performs as billionaire Daddy Warbucks who opens his home and eventually opens his heart; Jessica Sole as Grace Farrel - Daddy Warbuck's secretary who loves Annie from the start; and Belinda Henwood as Lily St. Regis, Rooster's trashy girlfriend.
Multi-award winning set designer, Greg King will create sets depicting New York City in the 1930's; Neil Stuart Harris is creating the gorgeous costumes. The production team includes lighting designer, Tina Le Roux; Janine Bennewith as choreographer and Shelley McLean and Evan Roberts as musical directors. KickstArt's production of Annie features memorable songs such as Tomorrow; Hard Knock Life; You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile; Maybe; Little Girls and Easy Street.
Annie is a guaranteed delight for the whole family, the musical runs from 23 May until 15 June at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on the University of KwaZulu Natal campus.
