Congratulations Year 9, Ilena Shadbolt, who has been selected as one of three to play the role of Annie in the up-coming New Zealand tour.
Over 600 girls audition for the role in Christchurch, Wellington and New Zealand. Along with the three Annie roles there are 20 Orphans, which two more Queen Margaret College students will fill. Both are Year 8 girls, Kaylee Alexander-Hall and Sophie Plimmer.
All three girls are familiar with the musical, as they all played Orphan roles in the Annie Jr joint Scots College production last year.
