Annie is the perfect family-friendly show set in 1930s New York City, and has become an international phenomenon. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition. All roles are available. 

Adults: Note, this is not a show with mostly kids in the cast.  The majority of the story and characters is for adults. There are a variety of lead and ensemble roles for adults ranging in age from 16 to 75.  All are welcome.  

Orphans: Girls who look and act between the ages of 6-13. If enough girls audition, we will do a double cast.

Boys: There are several ensemble roles available for boys between the ages of 7-13.

We are looking for both singers and dancers for this production, but everyone needs to do some of each.  Whether you consider yourself a dancer who can carry a tune or a singer who can move, we want to see you.
