Auditions next week for Granite ‘Annie’ production

The Westerly Sun

WESTERLY — If you’ve got a young actress in the making, you might want to consider accompanying her to the auditions for “Annie” next week at the Granite Theatre.

The auditions will be held on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 13 and 14, at the theater, 1 Granite Street, Westerly, beginning at 6 p.m.

According to the Granite’s Associate Artistic Director Beth Jepson, the theater is looking for a total of eight little girls between the ages of 7 and 12 to play the roles of Annie and the orphans.

Adults are also needed, Jepson said, six  women between the ages of 20 and 60, and six men between the ages of 25 and 60.

The role of Daddy Warbucks is pre-cast, said Jepson, but the roles of Miss Hannigan, Rooster Hannigan, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and many others are still available.

The show will be directed by Granite Artistic Director David Jepson with musical direction by Stephen DeCesare and choreography by Lisa Clough.

There will be 19 performances of “Annie,” between Nov. 23 and Dec. 23.

No appointments are necessary, said Jepson, but auditioners must bring their own sheet music.

“No a capella or tracks please,” she said, adding that an accompanist will be provided, and auditioners may be asked to sing a song from “Annie.”

Actors are also asked to bring a head shot or current photo along with them.

 Sign in time for children is 6 p.m. and for adults, it’s 7 p.m.

All cast and crew receive stipend payments for performances.
