Calliope Auditions: Annie
Calliope announces auditions for Annie, the Broadway musical.
Annie was adapted from the comic strip: Annie is an 11-year-old orphan who longs for her parents to rescue her from the Municipal Orphanage and its mean-spirited matron, Agatha Hannigan. When billionaire Oliver Warbucks stumbles upon the little orphan and decides to adopt her, he must first deal with Miss Hannigan's oportunistic schemes.
