Well done and congratulations to the cast and crew of the Felpham Community College production of ‘Annie – The Musical.’
The sell-out show performed on the evenings of the 7th and 8th February, to a packed audience of students, staff and families of the cast.
Miss Coney, Curriculum Leader for Performing Arts, commented:
“Our students have worked really hard on the musical, we started rehearsals in our extra-curricular club back in October. We had to have a couple of last minute changes to the cast, students adapted really well and in a very mature way. We are really proud of the effort, enthusiasm and talent they have shown. The cast and crew were from years 7 through to 10 and all put in huge amounts of their own time learning their parts. We are now looking forward to, and planning, the next events – after half term we have our dance team performing at Dance House (all year groups), and National Theatre Connections for year 10 and 11 performing arts students.
Scarlett Turvey, Year 8 Student, commented:
“I played Annie and it has been a great production to be involved with. It has been nice working with kids from other year groups and making friends, as you all have a shared interest. We were all quite nervous before the actual show, as we have been rehearsing for so long it seemed crazy that it had actually arrived! I really enjoy drama, dance and singing. I have been a part of the British Theatre for over 2 years now, I currently go up to London every Sunday for it. I have performed in numerous shows around the South, including Frozen, Shrek, Annie and Moana.
