OPEN auditions are being held for Annie which will be at the Palace Theatre later this year.

The play is being staged by the Palace Youth Theatre (PYT) with the auditions set to take place on December 17.

A spokesman from the theatre group said: "The last time PYT did Annie (2012) we had a sell-out show and many past members still talk about this as being one of their favourites - so make sure you don't miss out

"Auditions are open to non-members of PYT, but you would be expected to become a member should you get cast."
