KCMT Presents “Annie” in November 2021
- Performances: November 4-21, 2021
- Community Matinees: Will be available, dates to be announced
- Performance Venue: North Kitsap Auditorium, Poulsbo
The irrepressible comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved, award-winning musicals.
Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, with a beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie features everyone’s favorite little redhead in her very first adventure.
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

TO PREPARE FOR YOUR AUDITION
Please check out KCMT tips HERE.
- August 17-November 4, 2021
- Tuesdays & Thursdays, 4:45 – 6:45 PM
- Fridays (Chorus(es) and Dancers called by Musical Number), 4:00 – 7 PM
- Saturdays, 10 AM – 6 PM
Please always check the Rehearsal Calendar for all current schedules. Updates are also sent via email at the beginning of each week.
Each actor will expect to spend 8-10 hours in rehearsal each week where they will learn the choreography, scene blocking, vocal rehearsals, and character development. Rehearsals are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:45 – 7:00 PM, and a four-hour block on Saturdays, either 10 AM – 2 PM or 2 – 6 PM, depending on your cast assignment. Specialty dancers and leads may have additional Friday rehearsals. Actors are expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals.
Please pick your child up on time after rehearsal. Actors should only be at KCMT (rehearsals and performances) only when they are scheduled. We are not equipped to watch children who are not actively involved in rehearsals/performances.
The Conflict Calendar plays an important role in casting a show. “Conflicts” that arise AFTER a show is cast are the same as “missing a rehearsal.” All KNOWN conflicts must be declared at registration. Absences arising after the Conflict Calendar is submitted, must go through the Attendance Supervisor and could jeopardize your casting in the production. You can download a copy of the Conflict Calendar HERE. It will also be emailed to you when you complete your registration.
Production Weeks are the last two weeks on our rehearsal schedule. Absolutely no absences are allowed during production weeks. Leads are required not to participate in any overnight activities during production weeks. We require that you clear your child’s schedule of all outside activities during production weeks. Extra activities during production weeks sap the energy from their performances. If at any time an actor or actress needs to be replaced due to unforeseen circumstances, permission and arrangements for their replacement MUST be coordinated through a Director.
The “Annie” cast list will be posted approximately two weeks after announcements.
