Sing this: “Annie, Annie, Annie, look what you’ve done for us!” Get ready – right here on Signal Mountain - for a summer with Annie, the most loved little redhead in Broadway history!
Auditions for the Signal Mountain Playhouse’s “Annie” will be on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5. On Saturday, May 4, auditions for 9- through 12-year-olds will be from 10 a.m. until noon. For teens and adults, they will be from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. On Sunday, all ages can audition from 5-7 p.m. The place is the Playhouse amphitheater on the corner of James Boulevard and Rolling Way. In case of rain, there will be a sign at the Playhouse entrance directing auditioners to an alternate location.
Auditions are casual, and there’s no need to have a prepared piece of music. The songs from the show will be taught on-site along with simple dance moves.
Everyone coming to auditions should wear study closed toe shoes because set construction will be in progress.
Dates for the show are July 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, and 27.
Rehearsals for adults will begin May 20 and start for children on May 28. If you’re auditioning, have a list of your conflicts on rehearsal evenings. Too, there will be no excused absences from rehearsals after June 23 or from any performances.
Director Allan Ledford reminds us that “Annie” has great parts for adults as well as children, and he hopes for a large group of adults to audition for roles, besides those listed above, for members of FDR’s Cabinet and other characters. In addition to Allan, other professionals involved in the show include Jennifer Arbogast Wilson as musical director, Lindsay Fussell as choreographer, and Nicholas Hartline as playhouse orchestra conductor. These are highly respected names within the Chattanooga theater community.
