Broadway Beginners: “Annie KIDS”

Broadway Beginners:  Annie KIDS

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 mutt named Sandy.

Participants learn the basics of acting, singing, and dancing in this two-week program and present a show for friends and family on the last day.  Director Nicole Palmer will bring out the little actor or actress in all of them!  These shows are fully-licensed productions taught in a child-friendly musical theatre format.
