Celebrating 8 years of fantastic productions and following the success of last year's production of Fame The Musical, Manchester will once again open its doors to the city's young performers, with another exciting Stage Experience! This year’s production will be Annie!
Annie is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Stage Experience is an exciting two week project which takes place in the summer. It gives all budding actors, singers and dancers the chance to experience what it is like to work on a professionally run production. The cast / crew have just two weeks to create the production - rehearsing everyday, building the set, sourcing the props and making the costumes! All stage experience applicants will work with a professional production team and get to perform on the famous Palace Theatre stage in front of an audience!
