A Wiltshire youth theatre group is finally going on stage to perform after opening rehearsals for its latest production two years ago.

The Clogettes are the youth group for CLOGS Musical Theatre and their production of Annie JR will be performed at The Neeld Community & Arts Centre in Chippenham at 7pm on Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22.

A spokeswoman for the group said: “This production began rehearsing in 2020, and due to the pandemic has been stop/start, delayed and then on again, so now they finally get to perform"

“The children have worked so hard throughout the pandemic, rehearsing on Zoom when we were unable to meet in person. I’m so proud of them, they really deserve a great audience so please support us.”

The production is based on the book Annie written by Thomas Meehan, with music by Charles Strause and lyrics by Martin Charnin, who directed the original Broadway show.

It was based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie and is being produced with permission from the Tribune Content Agency in New York and Music Theatre International.

Tickets for the show are available at £12 and £10 each from The Neeld box office on 01249 446699 or click here.
