Pixie Dust Players to Host Spring Workshop for Young Actors

Pixie Dust Players is thrilled to bring back their popular one-week Spring Workshop. Participants will rehearse and perform a 30-minute version of Annie, KIDS! with full lights, sets, costumes, and props in just one week!

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

All rehearsals and performances will be held at the Union County Performing Art Center’s Hamilton Stage (360 Hamilton Street, Rahway, NJ) There is a $350.00 tuition which includes production photos, a DVD of the performance, and a souvenir t-shirt.

This workshop is open to performers ages 5-16. This is great chance for beginners to get a taste of what the theatre process is like and an opportunity for more experienced young performers to play lead roles, including those often reserved for older performers. Learn more at

In 2007, Pixie Dust Players was founded by 12 year old Lindsay Maron. What began as a small troupe of young teens touring to nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and special education schools, soon became a full-fledged production company. Since 2008, Pixie Dust has produced 50+ productions including several world premieres and pilot productions.
In 2017, Union County Performing Arts Center partnered with Pixie Dust Players to provide opportunities for young performers to study theater and act in some of their first real productions.
