All of the cast worked extremely hard, and all ready for putting Annie Jnr on stage tomorrow at the Lochgelly centre. For our very own dress rehearsal.
Day 4 of rehearsals…
Today went very well. So busy, but everyone was amazing! First of all in the morning we got to meet Jack the dog. Jack is playing Sandy, in Annie! It was very exciting and he’s a lovely dog. All of the cast worked extremely hard, and finished off all of the choreographed danced routines. They are looking amazing! Rooster, Lily, Daddy Warbucks, Annie, Grace, and Miss Hannigan also worked amazing finishing almost all of their scenes! Well done everyone keep up the amazing work, can’t wait for tomorrow.
Today I done an interview with Duffy, I asked her how she felt about getting to play Duffy, and a bit about herself. Let’s see what she said…
“Hi, my name is Cara I’m 11 years old, and so happy to be playing Duffy in Annie Jnr with the YMTS. This is my first show with the YMTS. When I was 7 I done my first kids on stage show and continued to love acting ever since. I now go to YMTS drama on a Friday night. When I got told I was playing the part Duffy I was so happy, because I’ve always wanted to be an orphan in a play. I have been dancing since I was in nursery. I’m really enjoying working with the cast and making loads of new friends!”
Thanks for reading! 🙂

We all worked with Julieann the choreographer and managed to complete 2 new full dance routines. Also we practiced NYC and polished it up!

This weekend was the
casting weekend for Annie! It all went very well and very exciting. On the Saturday we got to know each other and our director Amanda. We also played some really fun games. We were there from 10-4. On the Saturday morning we went into groups and done our acting audition, from a scene in the orphanage. Then in the afternoon we met Katie. We all practised our songs for the Sunday with Alan. Then after a very busy- fun packed Saturday the day ended. On Sunday we all done our singing audition. We also started off meeting our choreographer Julieann, who taught us part of the dance to Its a Hard Knock Life and You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile. The moves were great and everyone looked amazing. And finally at the end of the day, Amanda gave out the parts. Everyone done so well, and we all can’t wait to start again in April.
