Annie at St Clement Danes

Tonight sees the opening performance of the musical 'Annie' at St Clement Danes School. This is the school's Lower School production and involves around 40 students in a musical spectacular. It is the kind of production we look forward to our new intake being involved in once they join the school and showcases the musical and acting talent of our youngest students. On Monday, the cast took part in a dress rehearsal and then performed in the afternoon to pupils from local primary schools. Izy Martin, in the lead role and Maddie Martin, playing Grace, say that taking part has been an ‘amazing experience’. They point out the amount of work Miss Elliot, the director, has put into the production, often coming in for rehearsals ‘when she is not even supposed to be working!’ and praised the attention to detail in the props and staging. ‘Miss Elliot, Miss May and Miss Byrne have all been fantastic, helping the cast gel into one big Annie family!’ A gallery of images from the dress rehearsal can be seen below.
