The Twickenham Blue Cast performance of Annie was a great performance by Dramacube.  I was going to see this play last year but because of coronavirus it was then postponed for many months.  This is the first play that I’ve seen for ages, so it felt very nice and exciting to go into the theatre, since I hadn’t been for a very long time.  The songs that played while you were waiting for the play to begin and when it ended were very well chosen.  When the curtain opened, there was astounding scenery and I really liked the New York backdrop.

The play starts with the orphans in the orphanage and Annie (Mimi Worsley) and the orphans singing Maybe which was well sung by all the girls.  After that Annie attempts to escape but is foiled by Miss Hannigan (Mia Cousins), and all the girls are then put to work, which leads them to sing It’s a Hard Knock Life which had good choreography.  The props in this scene were very good and I really liked the large oversized bed and the laundry basket that Annie escapes in.  I also enjoyed Mia Cousins singing the song Little Girls which she performed really well…read on for more here
