All roles are open to audition. The company is seeking an ensemble cast of adults and children (aged 6-14) for this production. Auditioners must bring sheet music with them and be prepared to sing 32 bars, but no more than one minute, of a fully memorized Broadway-style musical selection (preferably from ANNIE) that showcases their vocal range.
All children auditioning for the role of “Annie” or “Orphans” will sing a section of “Tomorrow”(sheet music will be provided for you with your appointment confirmation) – no other musical selection will be necessary. An accompanist will be provided. If your vocal selection is not from ANNIE, please provide sheet music. Auditioners should mark their selection with a highlighter. A cappella singing, instrumentals on CD, Tape, iPod, MP3 Player or digital recorder will not be allowed. Auditioners may also be asked to read from the script.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your appointment. An audition confirmation e-mail will be sent with full details on what will be expected at your audition. Audition appointments by e-mail are preferred, but if you do not have access to e-mail call the Warner Theatre Audition Line at 860-489-7180 ext.151. Please be specific as to the date you would like to schedule your appointment.
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. And now, alongside her signature pal dog, Sandy, she's set her sights on making us grin from ear to ear as she inspires a whole new millennium. Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, ANNIE - with Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Martin Charnin, and Book by Thomas Meehan – is based upon the popular Harold Gray comic strip, Little Orphan Annie. The family-friendly tale of an orphan whose hard knock life is forever changed when paired with a snappish billionaire, Annie features such showtune staples as “Maybe,” “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You” and “Tomorrow.”
