AFTER the live and online auditions, Resorts World Manila (RWM) introduces two promising young talents who will be playing the lead role in its latest theater offering, “Annie.” Nine-year-old Krystal Brimner, who recently won a Best Child Performer award in the 2015 Metro Manila filmfest for her role as Angel in Erik Matti’s “Honor Thy Father,” and 10-year-old Isabeli Elizalde who takes her first shot at professional acting, were both cast for the coveted role.
Krystal and Isabeli performed song excerpts from the musical including the classic “Tomorrow” which caught the attention of “Annie” director Michael Williams and Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo who will be playing the role of Ms. Hannigan.
RWM Chief Operations Manager for Entertainment Alou Almaden was equally ecstatic with the casting of the two fresh talents as she shared RWM’s efforts in making the musical’s production underway happen.
Annie is set to open this September at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila. For more updates visit www.rwmanila.com.
