Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre to hold auditions for ANNIE Jr. – the Musical
The Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theater invites students in grades 2 through 12 to audition, Tuesday, September 6th, (the day after Labor Day) for the cast of the hit musical ANNIE Jr.
Set in New York in the 30’s, Annie lives in an orphanage run by Miss Hannigan who is a sleazy, fairly unpleasant character. Annie was left as a baby with a letter saying her parents would return for her one day, and the thought of this keeps her going! However sometimes she runs away to try and find them for herself.
One day Grace Farrell, the secretary to Mr. Oliver Warbucks, the millionaire, arrives to give an orphan a holiday in his grand home for Christmas, and Grace chooses Annie.
Annie is immediately loved by everyone, including Warbucks, who asks her if she would like to be adopted by him. Although Annie tells him she would love to stay she is waiting to be reunited with her real mother and father. Warbucks then tries to help Annie find her parents by offering a reward for them to come forward.
When Miss Hannigan hears of this she hatches a plan with her brother Rooster, who is a rogue, and he, along with his girlfriend Lily, pretend to be Annie’s long lost parents. However their plan is foiled and of course Annie ends up living happily ever after with Warbucks (having eventually found out that her real parents had died many years before).
Auditions will be held at the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday, September 6th from 4:00-5:00 PM for 2nd and 3rd grades, 5:00-6:30 PM for 4th through 7th grades and 6:30-8:00 PM for 8th through 12th grades.
This production calls for a large cast of around 40. It costs nothing to audition and there is a $50 participation fee if you are cast in the show. Please prepare a 30 second Monologue or short selection from another play, poem or book, (we will have several at the audition if you need one) and plan to learn and sing something for us at the audition. Don’t worry if you don’t have experience, we’ll have materials at the theatre for you. Wear comfortable shoes that you can move in, as we will be moving around the stage.
Not interested in stage work but would like to be involved? Give us a call! We need help with the technical parts – building sets, props, costumes, lights and sound. Parental and student assistance is welcome and several scholarships are available. To sign-up and for more information, call
The Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theater would love to see you in ANNIE!
