The Fable Factory, a theatrical production group, will hold auditions for a musical production of Annie on Sunday, September 18, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Vada Sheid Community Development Center on the campus of Arkansas State University-Mountain Home (ASUMH). All children in grades four through twelve are invited to audition. Young adults and adults are also welcome to participate. No prepared piece is required for the audition.
In this delightful version adapted from the Broadway production, little orphan Annie and her orphan friends try to play tricks on Miss Hannigan. Miss Hannigan is joined by Rooster, who pretends to be Annie’s real father and tries to win Annie over by offering her one million dollars and Daddy Warbucks a cash settlement. Along the way, you will hear such tunes as “It’s a Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” and “Tomorrow.” This is the story of how Annie found her Daddy Warbucks and melted his cold heart with love.
The Fable Factory has performed in Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee and Kentucky. With shows such as “This is My Country,” “The Little Elf Who Saved Christmas,” “The Ransom of Red Chief,” “Tom Sawyer,” “The Revenge of Captain Hook,” “Robin Hood,” “Mark Twain Alive,” “Christopher Columbus,” “Treasure Island,” “Joan of Arc,” “Oliver Twist,” “Liberty,” and “Jungle Book.” Directing the production are David L. Webb of Blytheville, AR and Ellen Lee Boone of Oxford, MS.
