Annie is the perfect musical for the whole family to enjoy, loved by young and old alike! Annie follows Enchanted Entertainment’s Easter Panto production of another universal favourite, The Wizard of Oz, which comes to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House stage on Saturday 15th and Sunday 15th April 2017.

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “I’m thrilled that Astravaganza Entertainment will be bringing their production of ‘Annie’ The Musical to Tyne Theatre & Opera House, as it’s such a well-loved classic. It’s wonderful to be able to present a show for the whole family to enjoy, no matter what age.
