THERE are some familiar faces treading the boards in the production of Annie at the Opera House this week.

Ten girls from local theatre company Stomp were chosen to play the part of the orphans in the West End production that runs until tomorrow. The lucky girls were chosen from 18 hopefuls by a panel of local judges, and four of them have speaking parts in the show.

They appear alongside a West End star cast with Ruth Madoc, famed for her role as Gladys Pugh in the comedy series Hi-de-Hi, at the helm playing Miss Hannigan. Secretary of Stomp, Sue Cordwell, said that the judges found it hard to choose between the girls and that for those chosen it would help them decide if they want a future on the stage.

‘All 18 of the girls we had to choose from were fabulous and the judges had a very hard time. In the end it came down to who was the right height and who had the best American accents,’ she said.

‘It is a lovely opportunity for the girls to be involved in a professional show and it will help them decide if they love performing as much as they think they do.’

Nine of the girls are appearing throughout the production while it is in Jersey, and there is one reserve that will appear in at least two matinée performances. The girls chosen were: Hannah Bolton, Katie Daniel, Francesca Germain, Caitlin Germain, Amelia Jones, Grace Marett, Georgia Morgan, Jordi Sunier, Ella Williams, and reserve Rachel Hermitage.
