Seven pairs of siblings are in Annie, playing at Saffron Walden Town Hall on Saturday, June 29.

The actors, aged from five to 12 will be playing the grown-ups as well as the children.

Spokesman for drama school Theatre Unboxed, Laura Thomas said: "We've been running for two and a half years. Annie is our first big production with our younger theatre school students. Some have never been on stage before.

"But we also have a tremendous bunch of 10-12-year-olds some who work as professional actors and have appeared on television. So it's a real mix of experience but every single cast member has worked incredibly hard to put on the best show possible."

This is a one-hour show adapted for young performers.

Performances at 2.30pm and 5pm. Tickets, £10 adults and £5 children from Saffron Walden Tourist Information 01799 524002 or
