Oh, brother!  Sibling mischief and best pal escapades are the problems Peter Hatcher faces in his attempts to deal with his impossible little brother, Fudge.

Based on Little Orphan Annie, with Book by Thomas Meehan, Music by Charles Strouse, and Lyrics by Martin Charnin

With her pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by cruel Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes into fantastic and wondrous NYC. In the midst of her adventures, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil schemes and even befriends President FDR! She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Volunteer Opportunities:     Let's put the "Community" back in Community Theatre!
Have you ever dreamed of working in Show Biz?  The Chesterfield Community Theatre is always looking for volunteers to join our collaborative family-- no previous experience required, but enthusiasm and curiosity are a must!  We are seeking volunteers to contribute in costume and prop construction, publicity, rehearsal support, concessions, and fundraising events.  As productions evolve, specific needs will also be posted on this webpage.  For more information, please email Artistic Director Sarah Moore at sarah.moore@ymcastlouis.org

Mastering Stage Management
Stage managers are the invisible stars of live theatre... if a backstage crew is at the top of their game, the show goes so smoothly that you'd never know they were there!  During each Chesterfield Community Theatre production, 3-4 student volunteers are selected to serve as stage crew.  These middle school, high school, or college level students attend all rehearsals, helping to develop the "technical" side of the production: organizing and constructing props, collecting and fitting costumes, choreographing scene changes, and assisting the director.  During performances, armed with headset and flashlight, they disappear into the wings to act out their own impressive show backstage.  For information or to apply for a Mastering Stage Management slot, please email Artistic Director Sarah Moore at sarah.moore@ymcastlouis.org

Summer Drama Day Camps at the West County Family YMCA
Members and non-members, ages 5 to 15, have the opportunity to join various summer performing arts camps which focus on acting, musical theatre, magic, and even circus performing!  Included are the Actor's Studio camp (who will perform Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing this year) and Summer Stock camp (who will perform Annie Jr. this year).  All camps are led by professional and college performers.
