Annie

Hi, throughout the past few months, children in a few surrounding villages, aged 7-14 put together a production of the play/film Annie. We followed the rough script and songs to the old film, and together all enjoyed the outcome as we performed it twice last weekend. It was a great experience, and a second for most of us as last year we put on a production of Oliver! For Annie, I was the Dog Catcher, and Drake: The Butler. We spent most Saturdays and Wednesdays for about 7 weeks rehearsing for the big days which was not long, considering we all had to learn lines, get props, prepare costumes, rehearse scenes over and over again until it was all perfect. 

I don’t really have much else to say, except for the fact that me and my friends enjoyed it thoroughly and would do it again if we had another opportunity. For a lot of people, it was their first time on the stage, but if you are considering doing anything to do with acting, singing or even behind the scenes prop making or designing when you are older, a small play or pantomime near you could be the perfect place to start, and even if it isn’t that serious or great quality it should be fun. We were lucky to have had an amazing director, that put a great deal of work into the play helping us both on stage and off, and it was made even better by the fact that she does acting and a singer. We also had people helping to get the level standard higher, people doing jobs like: The lighting, sets, sounds, music (Piano and Harmonica covered most songs) and prompter. This made the play so great and i wish I could thank everyone more. 

Hoped you liked this and that it will inspire you to do something creative like this, i’ll be posting again soon, a recipe I think as I haven’t done any cooking posts in a while, Bye,
