AnnieCelebrating eight years of productions and following the success of last year's Fame The Musical, Manchester's Palace Theatre and Opera House will once again open its doors to the city's youngsters, with another stage experience—Annie.

The annual Stage Experience is a rewarding two-week summer project which gives budding actors, singers, dancers and musicians aged 11-21 the chance to experience what it is like to work on a professionally run theatre production.

This year will see more than 100 youngsters taking part—plus special canine star Bailey, an 18-month-old Cocker Spaniel from Stockport who will take the role of Sandy the dog!

It runs from August 2-4.
