Published: Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Little Orphan Annie, Miss Hannigan, Daddy Warbucks, more than 30 orphans, and an Elvis Presley style musical will soon appear on the Opera House stage in Sandwich.

PR Productions will hold open auditions for two upcoming musicals, to be performed in Sandwich. Auditions for “Annie” and “All Shook Up” will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday. All auditions will be held at the Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich.

Auditions for “Annie” are open to any individual older than 7. Roles are available for young females, adult men and women, and a small mixed ensemble of various roles. “Annie” will be performed March 21 to 24 at the Sandwich Opera House. Rehearsals will be determined based on cast availability.

“All Shook Up” will feature more than 20 actors and actresses older than 14. Roles include parts for men and women of all ages. Performances will be held June 7 to 9 and 14 to 16 at the Sandwich Opera House. Rehearsals will be determined based on cast availability.

Those who wish to audition can arrive at any time within the designated audition period and should prepare 32 measures of a song that best displays their vocal ability. Thespians also will participate in an acting audition.

“Annie” made its Broadway debut in 1977 and played nearly 2,500 performances before closing in 1983. The show won seven Tony Awards. This heart-warming musical is the rags-to-riches story of young Annie’s journey from the hard-knock New York orphanage to the luxurious home of a billionaire.

An uproarious new musical comedy featuring the unforgettable hits of Elvis Presley, “All Shook Up” is loosely based on William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” and tells the story of a guitar-playing roustabout who rides into a struggling Midwest town and changes it forever with the power of love and rock ‘n’ roll.
