Around 50 students are involved in the production, not just on-stage but choreographing, set-designing and providing technical support.

Annie was chosen from a list of show due to the amount of girls auditioning to take part, and the show will raise money for the stage and next year’s production.

Rachel Duguid, head of music and drama, said: “Our 1960’s stage is presently undergoing a transformation, with investment in new curtains and sound and lighting systems. Annie signifies the beginning of this ongoing project.”
