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.
