Weave-In at Spencer-Penn, Basket Weaving, Vendors and Fun, 7:30 AM

Tomorrow is just a day away, but the chance to star in the classic Broadway musical ANNIE is only a few days away. Patrick Henry Community College Patriot Players are seeking a wide range of actors for the upcoming show – including actors who sport four paws and a tail. The cast list includes several leading male roles, multiple roles for ladies and young girls, and of course one role for a well-behaved, medium-sized dog. Auditions for ANNIE will be held in PHCC’s Walker Fine Arts Theatre will be from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Actors audition in the order they arrive. Those auditioning should prepare a song in their key and be ready for any movement portion of the audition that the director may require. Performers can sing a cappella or bring an MP3 instrumental track for accompaniment. An accompanist will not be provided. Although the cast list calls for a variety of ages, body types, and ethnicities, actors must be eight years or older to audition.
