A brand-new production of the Broadway musical Annie launched a new U.K tour, beginning performances July 11 at Newcastle's Theatre Royal, starring Craig Revel Horwood as Miss Hannigan.

Horwood is probably best known as a judge on BBCTV's "Strictly Come Dancing." Formerly a West End dancer in shows that included Cats, Miss Saigon and Crazy for You, he has latterly been known as a director/choreographer whose productions have included Olivier nominations for his work on Spend Spend Spend and My One and Only. Other West End credits include Tommy Cooper – Jus' Like That, Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks and a revival of Sunset Boulevard.

Annie has a book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Charnin. All three received 1977 Tony Awards for their work. 

The production will be directed by Nikolai Foster, and produced by Michael Harrison and David Ian.
