RARE Productions are excited to announce that the next show gracing the Thameside Theatre stage will be, the timeless childhood classic, Annie!
Open auditions will be taking place on Tuesday 12th June 2018 from 5 – 7pm and Sunday 17th June 2018 from 2.30 – 5.30pm at the Thameside Theatre in preparation for show week, which will be running from 15th – 17th November 2018.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations and even befriends
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks and his personal secretary Grace Farrell.
Annie is the perfect family-friendly musical.
The auditions taking place on Tuesday 12th June 2018 and Sunday 17th June 2018 will run for about 20-30 minutes. Young people are auditioned in groups of 10-12, and will be taught an excerpt from a song from the show, a short dance routine and will be asked to read a short piece of dialogue.
There is no need to prepare anything. Just be sure to wear comfortable clothing and footwear suitable for dancing – we cannot allow anyone to audition in socks or bare feet. It’s all very relaxed and informal so we will look forward to seeing lots of you there to audition for this exciting production.
There is no need to book an audition – just turn up in the time slot appropriate to your age.
