Our students will focus on basic musical theater principles such as character work, singing, dancing, and projecting their voices. Their work culminates in an abridged production of "Annie."  This program nurtures rehearsal and performance principles, encouraging, teamwork, and collaboration within diverse creative processes. All this while having fun and engaging in some theater games, new friendships, and so much more!

**The first class will consist of an audition portion! No previous preparation is needed, as it will all be taught in class.

Annie is a complex little girl. She is a tough, streetwise urchin who is nevertheless vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: a newfound "family" who loves her.

The Orphans
Molly, Tessie, July, Duffy, Kate, and Pepper are just a few. These girls are gritty, neglected, and vulnerable, yet basically honest and potentially lovable.

Miss Hannigan
This woman is definitely a "has-been." Her distaste for her job and the children that are part of it should be obvious in every line she speaks, every song she sings and every move she makes.

Grace Farrell
Grace is mature, calm, cool and "together." She is classy and businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and Warbucks, yet maternal toward Annie.

Rooster & Lily
Rooster and Lily are quite the team -- "team" being the operative word, as the characters play off each other constantly.

This may be the most challenging role for a student in this age group. He must appear middle-aged, self-assured and confident. At first awkwardly affectionate toward Annie, he soon finds himself completely charmed by her.

In this production, Sandy is played by a human. Sandy is Annie's canine friend and scrappy in her own right.

Servants (Drake, Mrs. Greer and Mrs. Pugh)
From the moment these characters enter the acting area, their presence, posture and speech should suggest the most fastidious of domestic help.

Additional Characters
servants, pedestrians, Bundles, the chauffeur, Louis Howe, the apple seller and the dogcatcher.
