Annie JR - 1st grade -12th grade 3:15pm - 6:00pm

Students interested in Annie Jr. should be prepared to sing and move expressively to show creativity and enthusiasm for theater arts. Everyone should prepare 14-18 bars of a song from Annie or a similar show to be sung with a track. Go to MTI Audition Central for cast information and audition resources. If you choose a song from this site, tracks will be available at auditions. If you prepare an alternate song, it is your responsibility to secure a track. You can contact Ms. McWright for help with this, if needed.

NOTE: Not all who audition will be offered a role; the cast will be capped at 35. Elementary students will be considered for roles such as Sandy, Molly and possibly ensemble orphans. Middle school students will be considered for roles as named orphans, ensemble orphans, servants and New Yorkers. High school students will be considered primarily for the roles of Oliver Warbucks, Miss Hannigan, Grace Farrell, Rooster, Lily, FDR, and ensemble.
