Little Orphan Annie – It’s a hard knock life!
Over 60 children between the ages of 6 and 14 will be battling it out for a shot at the iconic lead role of Annie in the Belfast School of Performing Arts Summer Youth Project.
Each year, Ireland’s largest theatre School hosts an intensive two week summer project for those who love to dance, act and sing and which culminates in two undoubtedley spectacular shows at The Mac. Running from the 13th to the 28th July, Annie Junior will be directed by BSPA Artisitic Director, James Huish, and those who take a part are promised a wonderful experience which will give the children a real feel for what’s it’s like to be part of a professional production on Broadway or the West End.
There are still spaces available and everyone is welcome, whether they are BSPA regulars or have never been on the stage before. Auditions for each role will take place during day one of the two week project. Pictured fighting over the lead role are (left – right), Erin Tumilson aged 9 from Comber and Tait Brennan, aged 9 from Larne, and also hoping for the role are (l-r) Grace Conroy, aged 9 from Lisburn, Charlotte Houston, aged 11 also from Lisburn and Lucia McLaughlin aged 10 from Belfast.
