A YOUNG Peterhead student joined fellow students from Robert Gordon’s College recently to present 1982 American musical ‘Annie’ to locals from Angusfield Care Home and Forest Gate Care Homes in Aberdeen.

Cameron Stephen (12), played the part of Warbucks in the pay, as the youngsters delighted the locals with their representation of Annie, a young girl living in a New York City Orphanage during the Great Depression.

Annie attempts to flee to find her parents, but the story soon takes a turn when the orphanage’s cruel and alcoholic supervisor Miss Agatha Hannigan catches up with her.

Head of Junior School, Mollie Mennie, said: “This was a great way to kick start the three-day run.

“The pupils performed to family and friends over the following two days where they raised funds for Kids Action, supporting communities in Sierra Leone affected by civil war.”

Drama teacher, Elizabeth Hawkey, added: “The show has provided a great opportunity for pupils to get involved in costume, set design, backstage work, sound and lighting as well as acting.

“The children really embraced their roles and got into character. Not only learning, but having fun with it!”.

Kids Action will use the funds to purchase Goats in Sierra Leone as part of the Give a Goat Project.
