SEARCH IS ON FOR YOUNG ACTORS FOR SHEFFIELD THEATRES’
CHRISTMAS PRODUCTION OF ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
Sheffield Theatres are searching for three exceptional young local performers to appear in their whip crackin’ Christmas musical, Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun, which runs from Thursday 8 December – Saturday 14 January at the Crucible.
Producers are looking for strong singers and dancers who can confidently handle dialogue in an American accent, to take on the roles of Annie Oakley’s sisters Jessie, aged 14, Nellie aged 12 and 10 year old brother Jake. Those auditioning do not need to be the exact age of their character but will have to have reached their 9th birthday by Monday 5 September 2016. Two performers will be cast for each role which will be performed on a rota basis.
To secure an audition place, all performers must pre-register their interest by visiting the Sheffield Theatres website www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk and completing a registration form before 2.00pm on Thursday 15 September.
First auditions will take place at the Lyceum Theatre on Friday 16 September where participants will be taught a simple song and work on an extract from the script.
Recall sessions will take place on Saturday 17 September from 10.00am – 4.00pm at the Lyceum Theatre.
Sheffield Theatres’ production of Irving Berlin’s musical Annie Get Your Gun will be directed by Paul Foster and choreographed by Alistair David, with musical direction by Paul Herbert.
