Annie Jr – August 2013

Leapin’ Lizards! The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.

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. She is 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.

With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, ANNIE escapes to the wondrous and magical world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, ANNIE foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations and befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
 

About the Junior Program

Established in 2011, Williamstown Musical Theatre Company Inc’s junior program is open to young performers aged between 8 – 18 years old and aims to provide them with high quality creative learning experiences in the theatre arts. A positive, supportive and fun environment is encouraged to promote and develop self-respect, confidence, awareness, imagination, creativity, determination and social skills in young people. Cast members also develop discipline, memorization techniques, motor skills, coordination, and many other crucial foundation skills through creative dramatics and, in doing so, enhance their self-esteem, grace, and poise, both onstage and off.

 

Developed with the intention of sharing our passion for musical theatre with children and teens so that they, in turn, can continue this creative tradition as teachers, performers and arts patrons for generations to come, we hope you can encourage all our young performers by your support.
