Summer Youth Project 2022

Light UP is thrilled to be back for our 4th Annual Summer Youth Project! If you're looking to be part of Annie KIDS, you must be aged 7-18 yrs.

Based on the iconic comic strip of "Little Orphan Annie," Annie KIDS tells the story of a spunky orphan determined to find her parents. Join Annie and her friends at the orphanage for a fun filled adventure to find a home, not just for today but for tomorrow too.

Over the course of 1 week actors, singers and dancers will rehearse with a creative team of professionals, led by our Musical Theatre Lead, Rosie Peters and choreographed by Susie Elliott. This one week project will culminate in a full scale 30 minute production.

"You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile!"

Get ready to go back in time and stamp your passport as we head to 1920's New York!
With its inspiring message of the importance of community and friendship, Annie KIDS reminds us how friends and family can be found in the places (and people) you least expect it. By engaging her community in her search for her parents, this charismatic orphan finds her family in a way she never anticipated.
What better time to raise spirits and get toes tapping to popular favourites like "It's The Hard-Knock Life", "Tomorrow" and "You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile!"
