Kingsley at Annie the Musical

The sun will come out tomorrow... well it certainly did on July 6th, when a group of year 8 and 9 students braved the sweltering heat to make the journey to London's West End to watch Annie the Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre. After stopping at the statue of Eros for an obligatory photo, we made out way to the theatre and took our seats (we had a great view from the stalls). 

From the first musical number, we knew we were Gonna Like It. While Daddy Warbucks sang that 'Something Was Missing', we could tell that nothing was. The staging was imaginative and captured the era of the musical whilst taking a modern slant, the acting was engaging (particular mention to the Little Girls who played the orphans) and in terms of the singing, we didn't Need Anything But the glorious vocals from each cast member.

Everyone really enjoyed the performance; we were left laughing and crying in equal measures. Despite the emotional roller coaster we went on, it was anything but a Hard Knock Life for students who got to attend the performance. So Maybe now this reference to the songs from the musical, is the last one that I'll write... bonus points if you can spot the others! Huge thanks to Ms Hook who accompanied the trip.
