“What have you done to my son? Our shy, quiet introverted boy comes out head held high, full of joy, energy and confidence” Amy

Drama accelerates the social and educational development of children. Auditioning for a part and performing on stage, builds resilience and confidence. Friendships and teamwork are nurtured through the process of supporting each other. Role play inspires creativity, empathy and the skill of resolving conflict. These experiences run through every Dramacube rehearsal, production and workshop as we share with children the magic of the performing arts. So come and join us to sing, dance & perform!

Annie JRSing, dance & Perform

Dramacube are delighted to present Annie JR officially licenced from Musical Theatre International.

Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, with a beloved book and score by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie JR. features everyone’s favorite little redhead in her very first adventure.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City.

Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan.

Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

With plenty of parts to go around and all your favourite numbers including; ‘Hard Knock Life’, ‘Maybe’ and ‘Tomorrow’, Annie JR. is a wonderfully rich production to be part of.

Rehearsals & Casting Sing, dance & perform

Weekly rehearsals for Annie JR are led by our professional Musical Theatre team in Esher & Walton on Thames.

Whilst rehearsing songs, scenes and routines, children will also learn about stage direction, characterisation and the importance of supporting ensemble.

Weeks 1-2: Workshops & Auditions

Our Musical Theatre team will help young performers explore and learn the story, characters, songs and routines in 2 weeks of workshop auditions. Young performers are asked to list the three parts they’d like to audition for and one part they definitely don’t want to play.

Week 3-4: Casting Announced

The Director will aim to cast every child in a role they’d like to play and that stretches their development. Everyone will have lines, songs and routines to learn for the show. We start rehearsals with our BIG opening number so the whole cast are involved and working together.

Week 4 to showtime!

The cast will come together for 2.5 hours per week, 2 additional 4 hour weekend rehearsals and a full tech & dress rehearsal (on stage) culminating in 2 full scale performances at Cecil Hepworth Playhouse in December.

Cast sizes are capped based on the number of roles available and places will be offered on a first come, first served basis so don’t miss out – enrol today! (see full terms & conditions).
