The Stage, by Bernard Bale • Theatre Royal, Lincoln

To say that Chris Moreno's production of this perennial favourite brings the Theatre Royal house down would be no false statement. The audience loved it and Jemma Carlisle as Annie steals the show. All credit to her because it takes some stealing and her success is a tribute to her talents which include singing, dancing and acting her heart out.
Su Pollard as Miss Hannigan and Mark Wynter as Oliver Warbucks are the big stars and use all their experience to make this a show to remember. They are very ably aided and abetted by a high-quality support cast, all of which deserve individual mention were there the space available. 

The direction of Chris Colby, David Kort's choreography and Mark Crossland's musical direction pull together with excellent lighting and sets to make this a production worthy of any West End stage. 

IC Coventry, by Samanth Clark • Belgrade Theatre, Coventry 

Childhood memories from the 1981 film came flooding back as Jemma Carlisle plays the title role in the show which tells the tale of a 12-year-old girl whose dream finally comes true when she is plucked from the cold, evil Miss Hannigan into the home of the warm, loving billion-aire ‘Daddy’ Warbucks.

Jemma and ‘Daddy’ - actor Mark Wynter - give outstanding performances which have the audience smiling one minute, their eyes filling up the next. Some may remember Miss Hannigan actress Su Pollard as downtrodden Peggy in 1980s comedy Hi-De-Hi.

Su gives an amazing performance with plenty of laughter-filled moments. Annie is an ideal show for anyone of any age and is altogether a good night out.
