All those auditioning should prepare 16-32 bars of sheet music in the style of the snow. An accompanist will be provided - no recordings or A Capella will be accepted. Be prepared for cold readings from the script. Dress to dance/move or bring a change of clothes/shoes for choreography.
ANNIE - Female, Any Ethnicity, Age 8-12
Annie is a tough streetwise kid who is vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: a newfound “family” who loves her. Throughout the show she shows independent, needy, maternal, and hopeful qualities. Although she is at times aggressive or crafty, there is no doubt that Annie is a friendly and caring child. STRONG SINGER, DANCER & ACTRESS
WARBUCKS - Male, Any Ethnicity, Age 30-60
A powerful, self-assured billionaire who always has his mind on business. While sometime gruff and abrupt he has a kind heart. At first he is awkwardly affectionate toward Annie, but he soon finds himself completely charmed by her.
MISS HANNIGAN - Female, Any Ethnicity, Age 35-60
Miss Hannigan is orphanage matron. Her distaste for her job and the children is obvious in every move she makes and every line she delivers. She is predictable and funny, in her ridiculous, cruel ways. Looking for an actress who can act with her whole body!
GRACE FARRELL - Female, Any Ethnicity, Age 25-35
She is the loyal private secretary to Oliver Warbucks. Grace is mature, calm, and classy and although she has feelings for Warbucks she tries not to show them. She is businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan, yet maternal toward Annie.
ROOSTER HANNIGAN - Male, Any Ethnicity, Age 20-35
Miss Hannigan's despicable brother. Rooster is flashy and self-assured. His “moves” are as smooth as a gambler’s: sly, and deceiving. The actor playing this role should bring a sense of fun to the character and have a good sense of comic timing.
LILY ST. REGIS - Female, Any Ethnicity, Age 20-35
Lily is Rooster’s airhead girlfriend. She is always distracted, although she manages to pick up on any conversation involving money. Like Rooster, the actress playing this role should bring a sense of fun to the character and have a good sense of comic timing.
THE ORPHANS - Female, Any Ethnicity, Ages 6-14
These girls are gritty, neglected, vulnerable, yet basically honest, and potentially lovable. They have mischievous fun with each other and also have “sibling-style” fights. MUST BE TRIPLE THREATS WHO CAN SING, DANCE & ACT.
•Molly - The littlest orphan.
•Pepper - The toughest girl in the orphanage.
•Duffy - The oldest girl in the orphanage.
•Kate - The next to littlest orphan.
