My high school decided to do Annie for our spring musical when I was 16 and I got the part of Annie. But like people have said, it really depends on the director and the other people trying out for the part.

I was just going to ask this.

I'm 15, 5'5" with a Mezzo belter voice. I sound young for my age too.

What do you think, Can I be Annie.

community theatre.

The youngest girl wants to be Molly, not Annie.

She's in 5th grade and I'm the next youngest (a freshman in High School).

Lol, I guess that pretty much slims down the chance of getting that role... :lol:

I'd say you have a nice shot of getting it, unless of course there is someone smaller than you who can also fit the role.

When I was in the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy was 23! I don' t think 14 (or onw in this case 16) is too old for Annie!

The vast majority of girls the ideal height for Annie (4'10-5'0) probably cannot sing or dance as well. Height isn't as important as being slight and having a.. "kiddish" figure to me. I've always pictured Annie being tall, anyhow. As your Warbucks would probably be 5'8" to 6'1" I'd say for you, if you have a thin, boyish figure, any heights from 5'1" to 5'5" could be good. Heh, 5'5" is taller than I'll ever be though.. you must have a pretty figure. :D

As someone else said, age isn't a factor so much as height and general appearance are.

Now I'm interested to see what happened with all of the people who were asking when the thread first started. O.o

Hey all. So I just discussed doing Annie with my theater teacher the other day & even though I'm 5' 3'' he said he thought any high school student would be too old to be Annie. Which made me totally sad, because it's like my dream to play her.

But I think it could be done. Because it's not like the audience is expecting a little eight year old. they know you're in high school ya know?
