Civic Theatre West Announces Auditions for ANNIE 10/25-10/27
Civic Theatre West is pleased to announce auditions for its upcoming production of ANNIE on October 25, 26, 27.
SYNOPSIS: Annie is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Auditions are as follows:
KIDS ONLY - Monday, October 25 at 8:00pm
ADULTS ONLY - Tuesday, October 26 at 8:00pm
CALL BACKS - Wednesday, October 27 at 8:00pm
All auditions will take place at the TOWER THEATER located at 421 Vernon Street in Roseville. Stephen Hatcher will direct, with musical direction by Jennifer Vaughn and choreography by Jeannine Bordeaux. Production dates are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm, January 7 - February 12, 2011 at the Roseville Theater. There is one Thursday show on January 20 at 7:00pm.
All roles are available. Be prepared with 16 bars of a song from a Broadway show (but not from ANNIE), and come dressed for movement. If at all possible, plan to attend both days of auditions.
