CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS

ANNIE  (Age range: 10 – 12) a complex little girl. She is a tough, streetwise urchin who is nevertheless vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: a newfound “family” who loves her. She has to be motherly yet independent, fierce yet hopeful. The actor who plays Annie must be strong vocally and musically; she must be capable of vocal projection without strain. Although she is at times aggressive or crafty, we must never doubt Annie is a friendly and caring child; she will go to any extent to gain the love of a family to which she can belong.
Audition Song: Tomorrow AND Maybe (Be prepared to sing both, but you may only be asked for one)
*We are looking at the possibility of Double Casting this role due to the intense schedule of this production. 

THE ORPHANS (Age range 10 – 14) Molly, Tessie, July, Duffy, Kate and Pepper. These girls are gritty, neglected and vulnerable, yet basically honest and potentially lovable. The actors portraying them must be able to have mischievous fun with each other as well as “sibling-style” fights.
Audition Song: Maybe OR Tomorrow, pick one.

MISS HANNIGAN (Age range: Young Adult) This woman is definitely a “has-been.” Her distaste for her job and the children that are part of it should be obvious in every line she speaks, every song she sings and every move she makes. The actor who plays her must have an excellent sense of comic timing. 
Audition Song: Little Girls

GRACE FARRELL (Age range: Young Adult) is mature, calm, cool and “together.” She is classy and businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and Warbucks, yet maternal toward Annie. Grace should seem ready with an answer for just about anything. The student playing Grace must be able to negotiate the challenging intervals in “N.Y.C.”
Audition Song: NYC

ROOSTER (Age range: Young Adult) is flashy and self-assured. His “moves” should be as smooth as a gambler’s, as should be the message he sells in “Easy Street.” “
Audition Song: Easy Street

LILY ST. REGIS (Age range: Young Adult) is an always distracted airhead, although she manages to pick up on any conversation involving money. She never acts as the leader, always bringing up the rear while tripping over her own feet.
Audition Song: Easy Street

OLIVER WARBUCKS (Age range: Young Adult) *We are interested in finding someone willing to shave their head clean for the run of the show, if possible. Must appear middle-aged, self-assured and confident. At first awkwardly affectionate toward Annie, he soon finds himself completely charmed by her. He begins his transformation when he views “N.Y.C.” through Annie’s eyes and falls in love with the city again…and with her. 
Audition Song: You Won’t Be An Orphan for Long

SANDY – Sandy is the stray dog that Annie adopts. Sandy has no lines but has the capability of earning spontaneous applause when he/she sings “Tomorrow” with Annie!  
Audition Song: Any

Star-to-Be- Star-To-Be is a glamorous diva in the number “N.Y.C.”. Featured singing role for a strong belter. 
Audition Song– NYC

Mansion Staff – Drake and the Servants are the loyal domestic help of Oliver Warbucks. This group of performers sings with the ensemble and will also be New Yorkers in “N.Y.C.” 
Audition Song: Any

Apple Seller: The Apple Seller opens Scene 2 speaking to Annie and giving her an apple. With just a few lines, this is a good character part for someone who is new to acting. 
Audition Song: Any

Lt. Ward- Lt. Ward is the policeman who questions Annie about Sandy, the stray dog. This is a great role for someone who can play an authoritative adult.. 
Audition Song: Any

Bert Healy- Bert Healy is the classic announcer on a radio show of the era. This is a non singing role and is perfect for someone who is naturally funny with a big voice.
Audition Song: Any

President Franklin D. Roosevelt- President Franklin D. Roosevelt is enlisted by Oliver Warbucks to help locate Annie’s parents. He will be pushed onstage in a wheelchair.
