Can you help feisty little orphan Annie find her dog?

The lovable canine star Sandy was last seen in 1930s New York near Miss Hannigan’s orphanage but has also been spotted at the massive mansion of famous billionaire Oliver ‘Daddy’ Warbucks.

Now rumour has it that Sandy is hiding somewhere in Horsham!

HAODS (Horsham Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society) are bringing Annie, one of the world’s best-loved musicals, to The Capitol this November and they are looking for a lovable canine pal to join them on stage.

HAODS have been entertaining the town for over 60 years but this is the first time they’ve done Annie.

Their version of this sunny musical will be performed by two all-singing, all-dancing casts of children, plus a talented adult cast.

It’s a heart-warming show about optimistic orphan Annie’s adventures to find her parents.

If you think your dog would make a great companion for Annie then please contact secretary@haods.co.uk.

They don’t need to able to sing and dance but as long as they are comfortable around children, HAODS would love to hear from you.

Annie will be on at The Capitol, Horsham, from Tuesday to Saturday, November 15-19, with performances every evening plus a Saturday matinee.

Call the box office on 01403 750 220 or visit www.thecapitolhorsham.com.
