Annie – SOLD OUT

Sat 20 April - Sat 11 May

$20 – $35

Holding onto hope when times are tough can take an awful lot of determination. Annie has reminded generations of theatergoers that sunshine is always right around the corner, and now the best-loved musical of all time returns to Parkes Musical & Dramatic Society – just as you remember it and just when we need it most.

Boasting a stellar cast led by Lexi Herden (Annie), Andrew Francis (Warbucks), Ruth Barnes (Hannigan), Hannah Farrant Jayet (Grace), Aaron Kingham (Rooster) and Kimberley Ryan (Lily), and ably backed by a hugely talented ensemble, band, and dedicated crew, this production will both amaze and delight you. 

Annie celebrates family, optimism and the American spirit, a feel good musical that is the ultimate cure for all the hard knocks life throws your way.
