Take a trip down memory lane and join Annie and her orphan friends as Annie gets to spend the summer with a billionaire.

Last term the group really wanted a play set in an orphanage. They really liked the books Hetty Feather and I found a play version of the book. However, after reading it, it was incredibly sad and involved a lot of death. I decided I wanted them to have something slightly lighter that they could have fun doing but keeping the orphan theme they all wanted.

Annie and the orphans has been really fun to put together. It’s been nice hearing the students say how they’ve watched the different versions of the film and talking about what they liked and didn’t like about each version. They were also adamant that they wanted to sing ‘Hard knock life’ so for the first time ever there will be singing and dancing in the show.

I really hope they have enjoyed working on this show and that you enjoy watching their hard work come to life.

Enjoy the show!
