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. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations.. and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

We're looking to cast a diverse group of performers with strong characterisation skills, great comedic timing, and the ability to tell stories convincingly through song. We particularly encourage Indigenous, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, and LGBTQIA+ performers to audition, as we look to reflect on stage the diversity of both the theatre community and the world we live in. We also encourage auditionees to audition for any character regardless of the scripted gender of that character.

We're looking for:

● A range of voice types, vocal styles, and performance experiences
● Strong comedic timing
● Confident performers and diverse characterisations
● Strong movement skills
● People willing to have fun, and work hard
● People who will contribute to a positive cast atmosphere
You must be over the age of 16 (or turn 16 before the first rehearsal) to audition.
