St. Catherine’s Players announces auditions for its 2022 production of Annie! Open Auditions will be held on Tuesday, December 14th and Wednesday, December 15th at the Lucey Parish Hall at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 4 Riverside Avenue, Riverside.
Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. 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. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage.
Roles are available for all ages 9 and above. There will be a limited number of roles (1-2) for those aged 7 and 8. Youth should arrive to auditions at 6:30 pm; high school students and adults should arrive at 8:00 pm.
