23 roles

AnnieFemale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Annie is a complex little girl. She is a tough, streetwise urchin who is nevertheless vulnerable when she thinks she might lose what has become most important to her: a newfound "family" who loves her. She has to be motherly in scene one, independent in scene two, overwhelmed in scenes four and five, needy in scene seven, and hopeful for the future in scenes ten and eleven. The actor who plays Annie must be strong vocally and musically. Vocal range top: E5 Vocal range bottom: A3

MollyFemale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Miss HanniganFemale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

This woman is definitely a "has-been." Her distaste for her job and the children that are part of it should be obvious in every line she speaks, every song she sings and every move she makes. The student who plays her must have an excellent sense of comic timing. The acrid delivery of her lines and the torch-like rendition of her songs must distinguish her from the other characters in the show. Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: G3

Grace FarrellFemale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Grace is mature, calm, cool and "together." She is classy and businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and Warbucks, yet maternal toward Annie. The student playing Grace can set herself apart from the other characters simply by the sophisticated way she walks. Grace should seem ready with an answer for just about anything. Each dramatic situation should seem to come "under control" the moment she glides into a scene. Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: A3

RoosterMale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Rooster and Lily are quite the team -- "team" being the operative word, as the characters play off each other constantly. You might consider casting students of contrasting heights. Rooster can even be shorter than Lily; after all, these two are not to be taken too seriously! Rooster is flashy and self-assured. His "moves" should be as smooth as a gambler's, as should be the message he sells in "Easy Street." Vocal range top: Eb5 Vocal range bottom: Bb3

LilyFemale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Rooster and Lily are quite the team -- "team" being the operative word, as the characters play off each other constantly. You might consider casting students of contrasting heights. Rooster can even be shorter than Lily; after all, these two are not to be taken too seriously! Lily (the airhead that she is) is always distracted, although she manages to pick up on any conversation involving money. Vocal range top: Eb5 Vocal range bottom: Bb3

WarbucksMale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

This may be the most challenging role for a student in this age group. He must appear middle-aged, self-assured and confident. At first awkwardly affectionate toward Annie, he soon finds himself completely charmed by her. He begins his transformation when he views "N.Y.C." through Annie's eyes and falls in love with the city again...and with her. The student who plays Warbucks will need to be extremely focused throughout the show. Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: A3

SandyBoth genders6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

In this production, Sandy is played by a human. Sandy is Annie's canine friend and scrappy in her own right. This dog also has to sing.

DrakeMale6-18 y.o.All ethnicities

From the moment these characters enter the acting area, their presence, posture and speech should suggest the most fastidious of domestic help. (Your actors will have fun perfecting the precision steps, nods and curtsies.) Their heads are always held high and they rarely show their emotions. These roles are not difficult to sing, and creative students will have many opportunities to create charming characters of various ages. Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: A3
