Young stars at Whitby’s Camp Colebrooke were once again busy performing recently, this time with Annie.

Successful in their auditions at landing the role of Annie were Darcey Boushall, Ava Gildroy and Elise Leadley.

Each performing an Annie solo and a scripted scene, the three little stars got to work on sharing the role.

Of course, no Annie story is complete without the nasty orphanage manager Miss Hannigan and with an outstanding audition, Neve Eddon, alongside Thomas Newton as Mr Warbucks also took their parts in the show.

This time it was up to Director, Polly Diaz Thomson, to bring to life this tale at the LP Dance Centre.

“It was non-stop,” she said.

“I always forget how busy the week is, from auditions to head shots, to games and dances and not forgetting Camp Colebrooke’s Got Talent.”

The drama group always dedicated a Wednesday afternoon to seeing what other special talents the children would like to showcase; this time they invited special guest judge Scarlett Miller from Starstruck Performing Arts.

“We’re all about youth talent” said Chris, “that’s why I want the special guest judges to be young people, all of who have a special talent.

“It was fantastic to have someone like Scarlett in, and next time we will be inviting Gabriella Jones, a young, local make-up artist who my older pupils absolutely love and follow all her work.”

When show day came, the children were more than ready to perform for all the mums, dads, family and friends in the audience.

Parent Vickie Bellew said: “ It was another fantastic production, they keep getting better and better” with another adding: “you have brought my daughter back out of her shell again and I couldn’t thank you all enough.

“She’s loved it.”

Next time around, Colebrooke Media will be performing Bedknobs and Broomsticks directed by Grace Braim.
