Upbeat Annie JR at Peoples Theatre - WIN family tickets

Annie Jr - Peoples Theatre
Annie JR opened last week at Peoples Theatre in Braamfontein. We are Peoples Theatre groupies by now. The Show always ticks all the boxes. Great entertainment. Great cast. Great script. Great fun. Great for the whole family, from ages 2 to 100. Annie JR did not disappoint. The ever-fresh 1924 comic character story of an optimistic upbeat Annie JR has been done so many times, but the story never disappoints. Annie is such a breath of fresh air in her circumstances; so much so that you the children are cheering her from the sidelines all the way. Singing "Tomorrow" with gusto at the end of the musical.

Theatre veteran Jill Gerard says Annie is a firm favourite. "Annie stands for innate decency, courage and optimism in the face of hard times, pessimism and despair. Shje is an inspiration all of us."

Peoples Theatre has made available two family tickets (4 each) to be won here.

    Hey, I've like the two facebook pages (well, I had liked the People's Theatre before), and followed the two twitter profiles.

  6. My daughter who is six is adopted and she really relates to Annie and her journey to finding a family. Plus we love the musical and know the songs by heart so we would be delighted to see the musical. Thanks so much! Robyn Wolfson Vorster
