Learning How to Take Pictures Too

My students need a camera and memory card to learn how to capture moments of our Annie rehearsals.

My Students

"The sun'll come out tomorrow." That has been what my students have been singing in class as they prepare to learn the songs and lines made famous by little orphan Annie.

Bringing the 1920s-1930s era to the 21st Century is going to be fun and exciting.

The fashion of the Great Depression will open up the eyes of my students and all those involved in making Annie come alive on our stage. People of this era dressed with a style and manner that has been forgotten and will seem foreign to my students. We will be having a lot of laughs and struggles. I have had some of my students expressing interest in photography. Each time I have the camera up, they want to try.

My Project

The only way that we can bring Annie alive is with the proper costumes and sets. We will be bringing the characters of Daddy Warbucks, Grace, Ms. Hannigan, Rooster and the police officers to life. Their characters were defined by what they wore. Now the students playing these characters will emulate these famous characters through many hours of rehearsal. My students, as well as older students who are the "help" or "stage hands" have expressed interest in helping and learning to photograph rehearsals. This will be very important to the older students because this will be the last year that they will be in elementary school. They should have the opportunity and responsibility of capturing this very important part of their last year in elementary school. Students will learn how to focus, and place subjects correctly in the frame, as well as how to adjust the camera to capture fast movement in dark light (one of the drawbacks of stage lighting).

Please help my students capture and remember the characters that they have been learning and singing about in their Spring production of Annie.

Students and parents were amazed last year with the accomplishments of all the students who helped to put the Wizard of Oz together through the help of donors like yourselves. We hope to do the same this year with your help.
