We are putting on a production of Annie JR with our 4th and 5th graders. Our school is a Title I school in Georgia. Our funds are extremely limited and parent involvement is scarce. Can anyone help with how to design scenery etc.Many of us have limited expereince with producing a show, but we want to make this great for our kids. Any ideas/links to Annie JR production would be great!!

WALLY MEIER has a book out that gives a working scene design for Annie Jr. and many of the Junior titles. (Taken from the JTF page): Wally has developed a set concept that is geared to the Junior collection of shows. His "one-set-fits-all" design will hopefully accommodate all of these productions, making the transitions from one season to the next easy. All the art work will be provided for in such a way that your students can participate in its construction. I believe his book is available from MTI.

If you can't find anyone to paint flats for you, I'd say just have a couple of moving platforms and suggest the scenes with lighting. It certainly isn't the traditional Annie, but I think it might work.

We made styrofoam cut outs that we put around for each different setting. You can easily figger out how to stand them up and they are very cartoony which is where Annie came from. We did it about 10 years ago so I can't remember exactly what the pieces were, but I think we had a grandfather's clock. Easy to carry on and off!
