Audition for Annie

LEONGATHA Lyric Theatre is excited to bring iconic musical Annie back to the town.

The 2018 production will be directed by the talented Kerryn Lockhart, who brought beloved character Mary Poppins to life in 2016.

Lisa Pellin will once again lend her talents as choreographer and Daniel Moldrich will be the musical director.

An extremely well attended workshop was held on Sunday in Leongatha, calling for people to audition for the show.

The auditions will be from November 10 until November 12, with callbacks to take place between November 13 and 14.

Rehearsals will kick off in February for a July performance.

Ms Lockhart said Annie is a lovely show and she couldn’t wait to introduce it to a new generation.

“It involves some universal themes like optimism, love and acceptance. I really enjoyed the singing and dancing in Annie as a child, and I’m looking forward to a new generation enjoying the show and theatre. It will certainly create a lot of memories,” she said.

Leongatha Lyric Theatre is also hoping for more adults to be involved in this production, particularly men who can audition for various roles and cameos that need to be filled.
