SEEKING:

[ANNIE]
(Female, 9–2, Any Ethnicity, strong belter A3-D5) A streetwise orphan. She longs to be reunited with her mother and father who left her at the orphanage. Bold, outspoken, and clever. Optimistic and likable, she relates to children, adults and dogs easily. Actors auditioning for Annie must be strong vocally with a great singing range. An excellent actress with comedic timing. Strong dancer. Actors should convincingly play an 11 year old New York City orphan.

[MISS HANNIGAN]
(Female, 40s–50s, Caucasian, Alto G3-D5) Ill-natured matron of the orphanage. Shameless and pessimistic. Flirty. Great feel for comedy. Bluesy, brassy, torch-song singer. Actor must be a strong mover.

[OLIVER WARBUCKS]
(Male, 40s–50s, Caucasian, Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern, African American, Bari-tenor A3-D5) A self-made billionaire; the richest man in the world. Self-assured, confident and commanding, but warm hearted. Strong singer who moves very well.

[GRACE FARRELL]
(Female, 30s–40s, Caucasian, Latina, Asian, Middle Eastern, African American, Soprano D4-C5) Oliver Warbucks’ personal secretary. Sophisticated and businesslike, yet genuinely caring. She has the confidence to advocate for herself and others with authority. A strong singer with a warm, soprano sound. Must move well.

[ROOSTER HANNIGAN]
(Male, 30s–40s, Caucasian, Tenor G3-Bb4) Flashy, self-assured, bad-boy. He is Miss Hannigan’s brother. Must be a strong character actor, convincingly dangerous and prone to high jinks. Strong singer and dancer. Will also play various ensemble roles.

[LILY ST. REGIS](Female, 20s–30s, Caucasian, Latina, Asian, Middle Eastern, African American, Mezzo-Soprano Bb3-Bb4) Rooster’s new girlfriend. Streetwise and hungry for easy money. Considered a dimwit, but she is tough-as-nails and cunning. She has a cool sardonic sensibility, but she’s also very convincing when it comes to portraying the maternal, broken-hearted Mrs. Mudge in Act 2. Strong singer and dancer. Will also play various ensemble roles.

[ADULT ENSEMBLE](Male and Female, 20s–50s, All Ethnicities) Adult singers and dancers who make up the ensemble of ANNIE.
