Leapin' Lizards! Get ready, Sturgis!

One of the world's most-loved musicals is coming to life on our stage on June 20th-24th, 2019. The Sturgis players are excited to present "Annie" for the summer musical.

The musical will offer roles for both adults and children. Title roles include Daddy Warbucks and his secretary, Miss Farrell, Miss Hannigan, the orphanage's matron and her convict brother Rooster and his girlfriend Lily. Of great importance is the role of Annie (originally designed for a spunky 11-year-old redhead). Annie must have a strong voice - both speaking and singing since the role includes vocal solos. There are other children's orphan roles (boy and girls) with speaking/singing roles for a number of kids ranging from approximately ages 8-13.

Auditions will be held on Sunday and Monday, May 5th and 6th, from 6:00-8:00pm both evenings. Our normal rehearsal schedule is from 6:30-8:30pm Mondays through Thursdays. Minimal missed rehearsals are allowed, so please clear your schedules and make plans now to be in this great theater event for the whole family.

We are also in need of costume designers and seamstresses and painters and carpenters for the set. Call Marlene Kotab (347-1375) or Gary Nelson (890-2189) to volunteer.
