The story of "Little Orphan Annie" was adapted for the musical stage in the late 1970s from the comic strip that began in 1924 and went on to become one of the most successful musicals on Broadway at that time. Featuring some of the most famous songs in musical theatre, including "Tomorrow" and "Hard Knock Life," this production is a bright and colorful affair that bursts with thrilling energy.
This is an open audition for the full production with over 50 roles for males and females ages 6 and up. Auditionees should come prepared with a short musical selection (1 minute). No acapella auditions, please. Auditionees can bring a cd accompaniment with no vocals, mp3, or sheet music. An accompanist will be available. Actors should be prepared to do a cold reading from the script.
