Little girls in big show

You can bet your bottom dollar that these girls are really excited about taking part in a heart-warming musical.

They play the orphans in Annie which will be staged by Chesterfield Studios at the town’s Pomegranate Theatre this month.

Eleven-year-old Darci Wilson, of Newbold, who plays Annie, has been making friends with the twin dogs who will be stepping out with her on stage.

The nine-month old pets, a cross between King Charles spaniel and Bichon Frise, belong to Chloe Ayling, 14, and Lauren Wadworth, 11, who play orphans in the show.
