Manchester Stage Experience needs Annie & Co
Date: 20 February 2012
Do you know a young person who wants to act on the stage and loves the show Annie?
Celebrating 8 years of productions and following the success of last year's production of Fame The Musical, Manchester will once again open its doors to the city's young performers.
Annie is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
