Any casting updates since the Broadway World Finalists article?
Good for her. A very nice girl.
Saw that one girl wrote she was cast as Gretl on her website and AA page. Has full cast of children been announced anywhere? We were not involved, but my DC's are so excited to see it!
Congratulations, especially to the kids who got this from the open call!
Looks like Gretl may be from open call. Sophia Caruso may have gone to the open call as well but she has an agent and is not a newcomer.
Interesting. Mia Sinclair Jenness has it on multiple pages if her site she is Gretl. Wonder if there was a cast change?
maybe she shouldn't have posted prior to the announcement. She also is coloring different from the rest. Maybe she's the understudy.
Mia is the u/s so she is rehearsing. I could be wrong, but I don't think any of these kids were from the open call. They all had professional representation.
That doesn't mean they got an appt. That's what I was trying to say. Agents could not get everyone an appt so people went anyway. Kids with agents were also told to go to Matilda if they couldn't get an appt.
I know, but I'm pretty sure (not 100%) that wasn't the case here. And certainly not for Sophia, who was performing in a show out of town at the time.
Just saw she was at the Annie open call - didn't read it all the way thru - that was when she was 9
I know for sure at least one of the girls booked strictly from the open call - no representation. And I believe the older boy was featured in the open call video footage (posted earlier in this thread, if i recall?) He may have representation in addition, but I'm fairly sure it's the same boy who sang in the open call video. Regardless, it's exciting for all of the kids who were cast...I'm personally just happy to see kids being "discovered" at open calls. It has a nice Cinderella element to it!
That is great. I'm happy to be wrong!
Me too Zen mom. Especially since they had stated that they for sure found at least one from the open call. It's nice to know it's not a waste of time and not just a publicity stunt. Either way, all those open call kids were seen by a big casting director and musical director so if they have potential they will be remembered. Notes are usually taken and perhaps video as well.
Funny my dd has never seen the original but I'm sure she'll want to watch this one. Just would love to tape it and watch it sans commercials.
I am also super interested to see if they are doing an equity rate or a SAG rate or both. Just my curious side since this is a very different type of project. There are rehearsals and the live show - that I would assume would be SAG but I don't know. We're pretty new.
