The New Annie at Resorts World Manila

Resorts World Manila (RWM) recently acquired the rights for the classic and original Broadway musical, “Annie” from MTI New York. It is set to play on September this year at the Newport Performing Arts Theater. Preparations were underway and live and online auditions were held in search for the new Annie. 
Very recently, RTW announces that it had concluded its search and it has already selected the lucky young talent among the hundreds of hopefuls who auditioned to play the lead role.

Meet the new Annie/s

Krystal Brimner
(9 years old), 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. 

Isabeli Elizalde
(10 years old), who takes her first shot at professional acting.
Both were picked for the most coveted role as Annie.  

Krystal and Isabeli were made to perform 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.

Annie play dates and other details will be announced soon on this blog. Watch out for NindotKaayo.com’s review soon.

In a presscon held in Cebu, Monica Cuenco told the press in Cebuano that Cebu is not new to her since she was able to reside in Cebu for a couple of years. A native from Leyte, Monica joins several singing contest before she had the biggest break in her career –taking on the iconic role of Dorina Pineda which was first portrayed by the Megastar Sharon Cuneta in Bituing Walang Ningning (Movie), a role that is easily relatable to her for its parallelism with her own life story.
