Juniors’ ‘Tomorrow’ raises over £1500 for Shelter

‘Tomorrow’ became ‘today’ when the Juniors gave a refreshed and revitalised performance of the 1980s film version of ‘Annie’ for their seasonal show – and raised over £1500 for Shelter in the process!

Dressed as pairs of Annies and her dog Sandys, Year 3 performed the Broadway hit, which included Glee-style toe-tapping number ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ whilst Year 4, playing the roles of orphans and servants, danced and sang to smash hits ‘Never Fully Dressed’ and ‘Getting to know you’.

Year 6 performed Alicia Keys’ chart hit, ‘Empire State of Mind’ in costumes artistically designed to mirror the skyline of New York and Year 5 danced, twirled, rolled and tumbled in their version of ‘Hard Knock Life’.

One parent said: “I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a few of tonight’s cast starring in a hit show one day.”

Directed by Junior School Class Teacher, Mrs Rachel Beckwith and Junior School Music Teacher, Miss Emma Boardman, they said: “It was great to see all children performing to the best of their abilities and working together to support one another as such a great team, we had children as stage hands, dancing, singing, painting and acting and it was great to see them all have so much fun!”

Overall it was a spectacle fit for the bright lights of Broadway!
