Open Arts Alliance to Hold Auditions for Annie Jr.

Open Arts Alliance is proud to announce auditions for its upcoming musical production of Annie Jr. Auditions will be held December 12, 13, and 14 at 7:00 pm at Round Hill Community Center, 395 Round Hill Road in Greenwich.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Featuring classic songs like: “Easy Street,” “It’s The Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow,” Annie is one of the world’s most beloved musicals.

Performances of Annie Jr. will take place on Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th at the Cole Auditorium at the Greenwich Library.

Rocco Natale, Executive Director of Open Arts Alliance, will direct the musical. Rocco will be joined by Ronnie Staplefield (Associate Producer), Jennifer Dunn (Choreographer), Maria Colonnato (Costume and Scenic Designer), Jack Kriskey (Crew Foreman) and Kerry Gavin (Music Director).

All youth in the community ages 8-18 are encouraged to audition. Required audition registration can be completed at by December 11th. Auditioners need only attend one of the scheduled audition dates.
