“ANNIE” FULLY CAST (except for Sandy)

Published:

After long rounds of auditions for adult and child performers alike, the decisions have been made and the cast settled.  Singing rehearsals are already underway and the early principal calls begun.

 

Daddy Warbucks will be a new-comer to BOST, Stuart Raphel, while his secretary, Grace Farrell, will be played by Mel Isaac, last seen as Cinderella in “The Slipper And The Rose.”  In playing the cantankerous orphanage director Miss Hannigan, the versatility of Pat Davies, who recently played Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, will be seen.

Rooster and Lily St Regis, the “baddies” who try to kidnap Annie, will be played by Chris Simmons, lately Nathan Detroit, and Elizabeth Beattie who recently strutted her stuff in the New York Hot Box, both in our May production of “Guys And Dolls.”

The orphans are  a wonderfully talented bunch of girls, and will be fronted by Annabel Connell-Welsh and Isabelle Cross, each of whom will take the role of Annie, for different performances.

 

Sandy, of course, is the stray dog which Annie befriends and shares mini-adventures with.  Suitably coloured dogs of all sorts will be “auditioned” on Sunday 10th August so that the cast will be complete.  If you know of a candidate, please find the necessary details from the previous News item and get the dog there for his/her chance of stardom!
