How to Prepare For Annie Auditions: 

1. Do Research: Know what Annie is about and get to know the characters.

2. Characters: Figure out which character you want to audition for.

3. Sign-ups: Sign-up for your audition day and order you want to audition in Mrs. Sheets room. You must be present for your date and slot. If you miss your date/slot, you miss your chance to audition. 

4. Music: Prepare  and memorize one of the attached songs below BEFORE your audition. Find the song that corresponds with the character you want to audition for. Practice with both the guided/non-guided vocals. 

5. Sides: A small section of the script will be given out during auditions. Read your side in your best character voice using emotion. You do not need to prep anything prior, but you should know what character you are auditioning for. 

6. Audition Form: As you come in for auditions, meet with the technicians for an audition form. YOU MUST FILL OUT 2 FORMS. One form for each director. The forms are to help us get to know you better, write down information, and review any potential conflicts. 

7. Conflicts: A rehearsal calendar will be posted in Mrs. Sheets room. Prior to auditions, check the calendar and talk with a parent about potential conflicts that will interfere with being committed to the musical. WRITE DOWN ALL CONFLICT DATES ON YOUR AUDITION FORM. 

8. Slate: As you enter the room, state the following: Your name, who you are auditioning for, and if you would rather start with your song or your side. 

6. Callbacks: At the end of auditions (1-2 days later) a callback will be announced. A callback is a list of people we would like to callback for a potential roll. Materials will be posted prior to callbacks and students will be given 1 week to prepare. If you do not get a callback, it does not mean that you were not cast. 

Please ask Mrs. Sheets if you have any additional questions!


Annie: is a complex little girl. She is a tough, streetwise urchin who is nevertheless vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: a newfound "family" who loves her. 

Vocal Range

A3 - E5

 Principal Orphans: Molly, Tessie, July, Duffy, Kate and Pepper. These girls are gritty, neglected and vulnerable, yet basically honest and loveable friends of Annie. 

Miss Hanigan: This woman is definitely a "has-been." Her distaste for her job at the orphanage and the children that are part of it should be obvious in every line she speaks, every song she sings and every move she makes. 

Vocal Range

G3 - D5

Grace Ferrell:  Grace is mature, calm, cool and "together." She is classy and businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and works for Warbucks, she has a maternal toward Annie.  

Vocal Range

A3 - D5

Oliver Warbucks:  He is middle-aged, self-assured and confident. At first awkwardly affectionate toward Annie, he soon finds himself completely charmed by her. He begins his transformation when he views "N.Y.C." through Annie's eyes and falls in love with the city again...and with her like a daughter 

Vocal Range

A3 - D5

Rooster: Rooster and Lily are quite the team -- "team" being the operative word, as the characters play off each other constantly. Hanigan's brother and deviser of an evil plan. He is one of the villains. 

Vocal Range

Bb3 - Eb5

Lily:  Rooster's sidekick, they are not the most intelligent pair, but they are maniacally evil in their plan to steal Warbucks money. One of the shows villainess. 

 Vocal Range

Bb3 - Eb5

Sandy: In this production, Sandy is played by a human. Sandy is Annie's canine friend and scrappy in her own right.
