Annie Casting Call for Girls

Parents adamant about having their young girls perform onstage now have a new opportunity to exploit develop their talents besides having them strut in inappropriate outfits at the campy annual channel 8 variety show singing competition. Check out the details below:


Singapore, Monday 14 May 2012- Singapore's aspiring young actresses will have the opportunity to audition for the roles of the orphans in the forthcoming UK production of the musical ANNIE, which opens at the Sands Theater, Marina Bay Sands, on 10 July 2012.

The producers, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions in partnership with BASE Entertainment Asia, today announced details of the auditions taking place on 2nd and 3rd June, and called for girls aged six to 14 who can sing, dance and act to register their interest by downloading the form from www.baseentertainmentasia.com/annie and emailing to Anniethemusical@srt.com.sg by May 27th 2012.

The show's director and choreographer Roger Hannah, will be flying from the UK to Singapore for the auditions, and will be looking for three sets of nine orphans - the small and cute Molly, the 'Tom-boy' characters Pepper and July, as well as Kate, Duffy, Violet, Eleanor, Rosie and Becky. Each character must measure no more than 5'2" or 157cm in height.

Milan Rokic, Managing Director of BASE Entertainment Asia said, "We are really excited to be involved with Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and Singapore Repertory Theater in finding the right talent for this big International production coming to Singapore. This is a tremendous opportunity for children in Singapore to be offered the chance to perform in a large Broadway show. We look forward to finding local talent and growing their careers in what will be a spectacular introduction, via ANNIE, to The Arts and Broadway productions."

The role of Annie will be played in rotation by three UK-based children who will tour with the production.

ANNIE has become one of the best-loved family musicals of all time. The show boasts one of Broadway's most memorable scores, with the orphans performing some of the best tunes including It's The Hard Knock Life, You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile and A New Deal for Christmas. Plus there's fantastically visual choreography, a side-splittingly funny script and, of course, the adorable dog Sandy.

Successful candidates will be joining Britain's hilarious star of stage and screen Su Pollard, who plays Miss Hannigan, the dastardly gin-soaked Principal of the New York Orphanage, as well as David McAlister, a veteran of the West End stage and TV dramas, who will play the role of the kindly billionaire businessman Oliver 'Daddy' Warbucks.

Producer James Cundall, Chief Executive of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions said, "For young actresses to have the chance to star on stage with actors of this calibre in an international production will be a dream come true and the chance of a lifetime. Early in her acting career the Hollywood star Catherine Zeta Jones appeared as an orphan in the London production of ANNIE so you never know where an opportunity such as this could take you!"
