Annie UK tour to star Craig Revel Horwood, Paul O’Grady, Elaine C Smith & Jodie Prenger

Craig Revel Horwood, Paul O’Grady, Elaine C Smith & Jodie Prenger will share the role of Miss Hannigan in the new touring production of much-loved musical ANNIE.

Full casting for the 2023 UK & Ireland tour of Annie has been announced with Elaine C Smith and Jodie Prenger added to the headliners alongside previously announced Craig Revel Horwood and Paul O’Grady.

Elaine C Smith is perhaps best known for playing Mary Doll in the BBC comedy Rab C Nesbitt, as well as her role as Christine in the BBC sitcom Two Doors Down, for which she won a Scottish BAFTA for Best Actress in 2018. On stage she consistently headlines major pantomimes, having just finished her 13th year at Glasgow King’s Theatre. She played Cora in the original UK Tour and West End run of Calendar Girls as well as playing Susan Boyle in the UK tour of I Dreamed A Dream which she co-write with Alan McHugh.

Alongside them will be Alex Bourne as Oliver Warbucks, Paul French as Rooster, Amelia Adams as Grace Farrell, and Billie-Kay as Lily St. Regis. The title role of Annie is shared by Zoe Akinyosade, Harlie Barthram and Poppy Cunningham. They are joined by three teams of young performers who play the residents of Miss Hannigan’s orphanage.

Completing the cast will be Emily Barnett-Salter, Alistair Beattie, David Burrows, Sergi Ibanez, Rosalind James, Belle Kizzy Green, Ellie May-Wilson, Martin McCarthy, Phoebe Roberts, Lukin Simmonds, Matthew Sweet, Dawn Williams,and Tommy Wade-Smith.

Annie is a multi-award winning Broadway classic featuring much loved songs ‘It’s the Hard Knock Life’, ‘Easy Street’, ‘I Don’t Need Anything But You’ and ‘Tomorrow’.
