SANDWICH — PR Productions announced open auditions for two upcoming musicals in Sandwich. Auditions for “Annie” and “All Shook Up” will be conducted from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13 and from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14. All auditions will be at the Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St.

Auditions for “Annie” are open to any individual older than 7. All roles will be cast based on audition attendance, with parts available for young girls, adult men and women, and a small mixed ensemble of various roles. Performances will be March 21-24 at the Sandwich Opera House. Rehearsals will be determined based on cast availability.

“All Shook Up” will feature more than 20 actors and actresses older than 14. Roles include parts for men and women of all ages. Performances will be June 7-9 and 14-16 at the Sandwich Opera House. Rehearsals will be determined based on cast availability.

Individuals who wish to audition may arrive any time within the audition period and should prepare 32 measures of a song that best displays their vocal ability. Thespians will also participate in an acting audition.

“Annie” began as a popular comic strip before taking center stage as one of the world’s best-loved musicals.

Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, “All Shook Up” is the new musical that follows a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets. This hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy will have audiences jumpin’ out of their blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
