Gilbert & Sullivan holding auditions for Annie

The Gilbert & Sullivan Society is to return to Hamilton's City Hall this autumn with a production of Annie.

Set in New York during the Great Depression, the classic musical follows a young girl forced to live a tough life in an orphanage.

But her luck soon changes when she is chosen to spend Christmas with billionaire Oliver Warbucks.

A spokeswoman for the show said: “With its Tony award-winning book and score, including the unforgettable songs It's The Hard-Knock Life, Easy Street and Tomorrow, this is a show not to be missed.”

The performing arts charity last performed the show in 1992, with a production that featured Rebecca Faulkenberry.

Ms Faulkenberry has since made a name for herself on Broadway and has appeared in shows including Spiderman: Turn off the Dark and Groundhog Day.

Auditions for the new production will be held between June 1 and 3, with the production team looking for girls between the ages of 8 and 12 to play Annie and her friends.

The team is also looking to cast a range of adult parts, a junior and adult ensemble, and a dog.

To reserve an audition time, please contact producer Deborah Smith-Joell at 735-1547 or e-mail at deborahjoell53@gmail.com. The charity is also looking for a location to build the set for the show. Anyone who can help with a location available in September should contact Ms Smith-Joell
