A selection of Albert's Angels pictures and videos:

At the end of the final day of auditions, when the girls had been cast, they celebrated with a grand finale. The Annies got into costume and the orphans put red Annie T-shirts on, then the whole cast sang 'Morgen'- I love this video. Jennifer is one of the last Annies to enter- 3rd from the left when all the Annies have entered.

A few days later, all of the girls got together and spent the day singing and dancing, in dfferent combinations, so that the groups could be figured out. Here are two videos from that day of Jennifer and the Albert's Angels, singing Hard Knock Life and Smile.

An Annie medley featuring Albert's Angels (and the wrong soundtrack- it's from 1997)

Seems like there's so many videos of Stephanie and Cheyenne, but I can't find anything on the other Annies. Thanks for this, though. I wish there was someplace online to compare all the different Annie voices. Cheyenne's seems so mature for her age. Reminiscent of Brittney Kissinger, I think. Stephanie sounds adorable. She puts so much anger into Hard Knock Life!

Thanks again. God bless. If you find any other videos, please post.

Hi CindyS,

Yes, I agree, it would be nice to compare all of the Annie's voices. There were some videos of Albert's Angels doing Een Zwaar Bestaan, but they appear to have been removed. What a shame. These are the Annies whose voices you can compare:

1. Neeltje De Vree (Audition Video)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_BZ6GKNhPM

2. Stephanie Van Rooijen (The best to compare...)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RL9T_3R2WBQ

3. Jennifer Welts (not the best as she's with her group)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRczQ-E9bFk

4. Sharon Witsiers sings many songs on the cast album- Hard Knock Life, Think I'm Gonna Like It Here, Won't Be An orphan For Long. Email me and I can send you the full CD (zip file). Not sure of Julie's downloads policy...
She also features a little in a YouTube video (read on)

5. Emee De Boer (starts the song off- short solo)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1j5lm4Bk7Y

6. Marieke Swart and Esmee De Boer alternated as part of the same orphan group, De PodiumRakkers, after the show moved to the Efteling and they did an interview together. Marieke, in costume, sings a bit of Morgen at the end.

The footage shown from the auditions about halfway through, features Sharon Wisiers singing a piece of Morgen, too.

7. Cheyenne Krijgsman (her best clip and a live clip)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMMawPB3FsI
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cc5vaznw84

8. Stephanie Verstraten(website- no audio)
http://stephanieverstraten.web-log.nl/

9. Robin Virgine (did the premiere and last show)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcUSW1SIRPw (premiere)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CYczN7R2AY (final show)

10. Kika Wilschut (One Annie, One other)

Kika did an appearance as Annie, which she admits in the comments was not her best performance of Morgen. In a comment in Dutch, she apologises and says that she was too out of breath from doing Een Zwaar Bestann (the full stage version, not edited) to sing properly and of her three takes, they used the worst one.

In this video of her singing Ben, you'll see she's a very good singer, usually.

Many Annies and orphans had also appeared in the Dutch version of The Sound of Music 2001/2, a few years before. As for Annie, 10 groups of children were cast and there's lots of videos on YouTube.

Kika was a Gretel and both Stephanies were Martas. Lizette Hart, who played July alongside Neeltje De Vree in De Weesgrietjes, was a Brigitta.

The one video I can recommend is this one. A very young-looking Stephanie Van Rooijen is playing Marta and Lizette is playing Brigitta. Kika and Stephanie Vertraten were in another group, but they are both in a picture on Stephanie's website.



Phew!
Alex
