With the help of the other girls in the orphanage, Annie escapes to New York City to find a new home with a billionare, his personal secretary, and a loveable mutt named Sandy.


Saturday, Sep 30 from 1:30 PM until 4:00 PM
Sunday, Oct 1 from 2:00 PM until 5:00 PM

We are looking for women, men, girls and boys from 6 years of age and up. In addition to the orphans, the chorus in this show is very active indeed, and if you are cast, you will love being the residents of “Hooverville,” Daddy Warbucks’ servants at the mansion, “NYC” strollers, and even President Franklin Roosevelt’s cabinet!

For your audition, please sing a song NOT from the show, and be prepared to learn a short dance routine.

We are also casting for the canine role of Sandy! Please bring your doggy star-to-be with you. He/she will need to be able to respond appropriately to “Here Sandy!”

Rehearsals will begin immediately on or about October 2. Questions? Please e-mail whurst@louisburg.edu or call 919-497-3429. We’ll see you here!

Labeled “the most cursed play in theatre,” this fast-moving Shakespearean tragedy is filled with the supernatural and the violent overthrow of power. Not for the squeamish.

This musical tells the story of a group of young Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a future where everyone thinks and acts the same.

>About Norris Theatre

Completed in 1989, the Norris Theatre was named in 1992 for Louisburg College past president Dr. J. Allen Norris and his wife, Beth. This 175-seat experimental theatre space has permanent seating on three sides and multiple performance areas throughout, including four raised platforms in each of its corners. Theatre can be produced in the space in an infinite number of ways, and Louisburg College's drama program encourages creativity in the utilization of the "endless possibilities" of live performance.

The Norris Theatre serves as a classroom, as a performance space for academic and community presentations, and as a "laboratory for theatre" at Louisburg College.

Tickets are available at the Louisburg College Box Office, located in the lobby of the Jones Performing Arts Center (919)-497-3300.
