(ANNIE girls named - featuring J&L’er Zoe Fifield far right)
One of the best loved musicals of all time - ANNIE is hitting NZ shores from Tuesday 23 May n Wellington and Auckland.
A total of 630 Kiwi girls audition for the Annie role and only three were selected, which includes J&L’er Zoe Fifield!
We are so happy for Zoe’s new role! She will start rehearsing this week under the direction of UK-based choreographer and associate director Jonny Bowles.
“The girls who auditioned have been absolutely wonderful and so talented,” says Mr Bowles.
“But in particular, our three girls chosen to play Annie have absolutely shone with star quality.”
We can’t wait to hear more from Zoe and her new journey as ANNIE.
