MARK YOUTH THEATRE PRESENTS
ANNIE Jnr

Thursday 23rd March 2017,  7.30pm
Friday 24th March 2017, 7.30pm
Saturday 25th March 2017, 2.30pm & 7.30pm

 

Annie is a plucky 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 scheming actions, and finds a new family and home with billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Its upbeat plot and flamboyant characters have made Annie one of the most beloved musicals in history and Mark Youth Theatre do it justice in this version which is specially written for younger performers.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LIMITED.

Annie Junior - A part of the Broadway Junior Collection. Based on "Little Orphan Annie" By permission of The Tribune Media Services, Inc. Book by Thomas Meehan, Music by Charles Strouse and Lyrics by Martin Charnin.

Thursday 6th July 2017, 7.30pm
Friday 7th July 2017, 7.30pm
Saturday 8th July 2017, 2.30pm & 7.30pm

 

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young Prince lived in a shining castle.

Although he had everything his heart desired, the Prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind.

But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle,

And offered him a single rose In return for shelter from the bitter cold.

Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the Prince sneered at the gift,

And turned the old woman away.

But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for Beauty is found within.

And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away,

To reveal a beautiful Enchantress.

The Prince tried to apologise… but it was too late,

For she had seen that there was no love in his heart.

And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast…

And placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there.

As the years passed… he fell into despair… and lost all hope…

For who could ever learn to love... a Beast?
