Congratulations to the following actors and actresses who have been offered roles in the upcoming Branson Regional Arts Council production of Annie, which will debut at the Historic Owen Theatre from March 8 – 11, 2018.
Over 80 talented youth and adults took the time and effort to participate in a grueling audition process this past week.
“The producers and directors would like to extend their sincere appreciation to each and every one of them”, said Executive Director Jim Barber.
“The final casting decisions were not easily reached as the talent level was very high, and there were many more people auditioning than available roles.
The Arts Council is excited, however, that we will have many more opportunities for everyone to audition for plays, musicals, or any of our theatre acting workshops that will be scheduled throughout the year”.
The Branson Regional Arts Council’s Theatre Advisory Committee oversees the selection of all plays and musicals throughout the performance season. Committee members include: Justin Ables, Kristen Ables, Tina Cool Anderson, Jean Cantwell, Kimberly Hale, Jim Barber, Lisa Murphy, Roz Slavik, Greg Slavik, Patty Slicer, Sue Head, Hayden Head, Darlene Graham, Michelle Inskeep, Delyla Uebel, and Rick Uebel.
Rehearsals for Annie begin this Sunday. The public is encouraged to purchase seats for the March 8-11 performances early as this production is expected to sell out. Advance tickets are available now at BransonArts.org/tix.
