Aug. 19, 2016

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Concordia Lutheran High School will sponsor the first citywide middle school musical, “Annie, Jr.,” to be performed at Concordia Elementary School on March 17 and 18.

Auditions for this musical will take place from 1-4 p.m. Sept. 11. 

“We are looking for guys and girls in grades 6-8 to be part of our show,” said Director Chris Murphy. “We will also be looking for students who are interested in painting/constructing the set, working backstage and working with lights and sound. We are looking to have students run as much of this production as possible.”

If you are interested in auditioning for this show or working on any part of the show (or know someone who should audition) please contact Chris Murphy at Audition packets will be distributed by email.

Practices will begin mid-September and will be held on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. All rehearsal information will be included in the audition packet.

Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony award-winning musical, “Annie Jr.” follows the charming tale of a little, redheaded orphan as she moves from her next-to-nothing home and into the heart of billionaire Oliver Warbucks.
