Theatre school to perform Annie Jr

A Blyth theatre school is preparing to open the doors on their first production this week.

St Cuthbert’s Amateur Theatre School’s production of Annie Jr will run from Wednesday, April 22, to Saturday, April 25, in the church on Wellington Street, at 7,15pm on weekdays and 2pm on Saturday.

The group will tell the story of orphan Annie who charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City.

After being awarded a grant to update the stage in the church hall, the production team and the church have been working around the clock to turn the old stage into a new fully kitted out stage, with new lighting and sound systems.

To book tickets, call the box office on (01670) 351732 from 10am until noon, Monday to Saturday.
