Applause Academy is now accepting enrollment for children ages 8 to 14 for the Spring Musical Production of Annie. Every child enrolled gets a role in the show. The popular comic book heroine comes to life in one of the world’s best-loved musicals. Annie charms us as she sets out to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorsteps of a New York City orphanage. Rehearsals for this production will be every Tuesday from 3:30 to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (excluding school vacation weeks) beginning January 8th 2013. Rehearsals and the performance will be held at the new Chelmsford Center for the Arts, 1A North Road, Chelmsford. The Musical will be presented the weekend of May 3rd, 4th and 5th 2013.
