Anita’s in An­nie trio

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SHOWS -

Coast per­former Anita Munro, 11, is one of three tal­ented girls tak­ing cen­tre stage in pro­ducer John Frost’s lat­est hit, An­nie the Mu­si­cal. The St An­drews Lutheran Col­lege stu­dent will share the lead role with Bris­bane girls Chloe Thielo and Xan­the Dun­ning for the Queens­land sea­son – but no one knows yet who will wear the red curly wig for Satur­day’s open­ing night per­for­mance in the Lyric Theatre at QPAC, in Bris­bane. The dream role will see Munro share the stage with en­ter­tain­ment royalty – An­thony War­low, Todd Mcken­ney, Chloe Dallimore and Nan­cye Hayes. The new mu­si­cal marks a re­turn to the role of Daddy War­bucks for War­low, who played the char­ac­ter in a 2000 pro­duc­tion of An­nie. Con­tro­ver­sial broad­caster Alan Jones will show off his vo­cal skills in his mu­si­cal theatre de­but as Pres­i­dent Roo­sevelt, while two other young lo­cal theatre stars have landed roles as or­phans.

re­hearsal this week are Blood Broth­ers di­rected by Clem Halpin for Spot­light; Chicago at Nep­tune Pro­duc­tions; For­ever Plaid, also at Spot­light; Daugh­ters of Heaven at Gold Coast Lit­tle Theatre; and Dinkum As­sorted at Been­leigh Theatre Group.
