Emmetsburg Main Street Community Theatre will hold auditions for the upcoming student musical production “Annie, Jr.” Auditions are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, March 27-29, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the theatre located at 19th and Lake in Emmetsburg. “We encourage all ages of students to participate, starting with a student who has finished first grade,” say directors Jackie VanOosbree and Peggy Stolley. “There are a number of solo acting and singing roles and a chorus.” “Annie,?Jr.” is the story about the Depression Era orphan, Annie, and her wealthy benefactor, Daddy Warbucks. These characters were made famous by a once popular comic strip, Little Orphan Annie, created by Harold Gray and syndicated by the Tribune Media Services. Annie and her orphan friends sing the songs, “It’s a Hard Knock Life” and “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow.” In “Annie, Jr.” her dog, Sandy, is played by an actor. Other featured roles are evil Miss Hannigan, the orphan home mistress, and her dastardly brother, Rooster, and his friend, Lilly, who all plot to get Daddy Warbucks to give them money and steal away Annie. Rehearsals for this student musical will begin April 17. Production dates are June 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11. Anyone with questions can contact Jackie VanOosbree at 712-480-3766.
