I love the movie Annie and the musical Annie was as good. Annie was held in the beautiful old Regent Theatre. It has mural paintings on the roof and lovely decor. When you enter the theatre the usher gave children a cushion. I had no trouble seeing the stage with the help of the cushion.
They changed the musical a bit but it was still like the original movie. There was lots of energetic singing and dancing. My favorite song and dance is It’s a Hard Knock Life that the orphans and Annie sung. My favourite orphan was Molly she played her role exceptionally well. The stage sets were great. The orphanage looked real and Mr Warbucks house was beautifully decorated.
I made a poem about Annie.
Annie was good
Annie was fine
Annie has freckles,
That look divine
See the show
Then go dine
Before the show mum and I had a crepe. We found this old newspaper stand in Swanston St that was selling crepes. It was just like the street stalls that sell crepes in Paris. They had French music playing and the people working there were also French. The crepes were delicious! I had salted caramel. There were many different types of crepes to choose from. YUM.
I went to the evening show and it wasn’t hard to stay awake. The play went for 2 1/2 hours with an interval. Click here for performance information about Annie. I recommend it for 5+
