Annie is an exciting show with parts for both boys and girls and with a mix of ages, so if you would like to be considered please come along on 12th December.
Rehearsals will be on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons with rehearsals for principals on some Wednesday evenings.
The show will be directed by Vic Laing with choreography by Lynne Moyes and Musical Direction by Izzy Henderson.
This will be FCT’s third production of Annie having also performed it in the 1988 Fringe and as an Easter production in 1992. It’s a fantastic, feel good musical with a host of well known and well loved numbers such as “Easy Street”, “It’s the Hard Knock Life”, “Tomorrow”, and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”
