If you are thinking about signing up your first audition but aren’t sure what to expect, join us for a FREE UpSTARt Workshop! The free program includes a 90-minute high-energy, and fun-filled student audition prep workshop that will give future actors the confidence to “take the stage” and the training so that they know what to expect throughout the audition process. The student session is followed by a 30-minute parent briefing talking through what it means to be an NTPA parent, expectations and possible next steps.

Space is limited and registration is required.

Synopsis

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including “Tomorrow.”

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. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations… and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
