ABOUT

The Summer Youth Project will be performing the hit musical, Annie Jr.

Our summer musical project gives young people aged 7 – 18 years the opportunity to work together for 2 weeks under the supervision of a highly-skilled professional creative team to rehearse and perform in a professional theatre, The Elgiva! These intensive rehearsal periods, full of singing, dancing and acting, are a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the performing arts and build confidence, whilst making new friends!

We have opportunities for performers and for technical roles in the company. There is a fee to take part in the project with sibling discounts available and auditions are free. The auditions will be fun and light-hearted, giving every child the opportunity to get involved.

The aim of the Summer Youth Project is to give local young people the unique opportunity to actively engage in performance and theatre. For two weeks, the theatre will be bustling with bubbling enthusiasm of children working hard learning dance routines, practising songs, making set and preparing to perform their socks off! We hope the project will inspire the cast and young technicians, plus it’s a great way to keep them active for two weeks of the summer holiday!

WHAT IS ANNIE JR THE MUSICAL ABOUT?

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.
