Annie Jr – our amazing summer project!

The sun certainly came out on the Elgiva stage when our amazing Youth Theatre staged Annie Jr, part of our brilliant summer workshop...

With fantastic hit musical numbers including “Tomorrow” and “It’s The Hard Knock Life”, Annie is one of the most loved musicals of the past 50 years!

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable dog named Sandy.

What a talented group of people to spend two weeks with!  So much enthusiasm, determination and commitment.

As well as our amazing cast, we had a group of terrific junior techs who helped with scenery, lighting design, sound, music and all the backstage wizardry.

Our summer youth project of Annie Junior at the Elgiva was nothing short of extraordinary! With 60 young people aged seven to eighteen, and a team of dedicated professionals, we came together to produce the most incredible show in just two weeks. This project was all about giving EVERYONE a chance to shine, so anyone could sign up and give it their all – and that's exactly what they did. I'm so proud of everyone and so grateful to our incredible professionals who helped these youngsters achieve so much. I hope you all enjoy the video!

We all had a fabulous time making new friends and learning new skills – can’t wait to see you all next year!

I cannot express how much my daughter has enjoyed this. Having done lots of productions before where there was a lot of waiting around, you've really kept everyone busy – she has loved every minute!
