The sun will come out this September at Resorts World Manila (RWM) as the premier tourism destination also known to have spawn such theater triumphs as KAOS, The Sound of Music, The King and I, Cinderella, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and Bituing Walang Ninging: The Musical is now on the lookout for its next star of the stage.
For its seventh theater offering, RWM through Full House Theater Company and in cooperation with MTI New York has began production of Annie, based on the beloved Harold Gray comic strip about a spunky and optimistic orphan girl.
Live auditions for the title role of Annie and that of the other orphans were recently conducted on April 8 and 9 at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in RWM, but hopefuls who come from the provinces and abroad may still have a chance to land roles via online auditions.
Working on its seventh theater offering, RWM is giving girls aged 10 to 13 a chance to land the lead role of Annie via its online auditions from April 11 to 15, 2016. Hopefuls must have no fear of handling a dog as the musical will also star Annie’s beloved pet Sandy.
The online auditions are also open for those who would like to try out for the role of orphans Molly (Annie’s best friend aged 6), Kate (the shy but friendly orphan aged 7), Tessie (the crybaby aged 10), Pepper (the bossy one aged 12), July (the quietest orphan aged 13) and Duffy (the oldest orphan). Girls aged 6 to 13 (or 14 and 15 year olds who can pass off as 13), are welcome to audition for the roles.
All hopefuls for the role of Annie and the orphans must have strong singing voices, proficient in English, and must be able to follow choreography.
Interested aspirants may upload a video of themselves singing any of the four songs included the musical namely “Tomorrow’, “Maybe”, “It’s a Hard Knock Life”, “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile”. Video uploads must be set in “public” in either the auditionee’s own Facebook page or that of a guardian.
