The Children’s Musical this Spring will be Seussical Jr. directed by Tyler Rogers with music direction by Stephanie Zukowski. Students throughout the Sheridan area who are currently in 2nd through 9th Grades and want to learn more about theater arts are encouraged to audition.
Open Call Auditions will be held on Friday, April 29th at 4:00 PM and Saturday, April 30th at 10:00 AM on the Main Stage at the WYO Theater. Families can pick either day that works best for them to attend. Students who plan to audition are encouraged to sign up in advance through the online form.
What happens at Open Call Auditions? When everyone arrives, we will organize students according to their grade level and call them up in small groups to the stage. Each student will be given a chance to introduce themselves, then sing a short song as a group and individually.
Some auditioners will be asked to return for Callback Auditions at 1:00 PM on Saturday, April 30th. Not everyone who is cast will be asked to come to Callbacks – this round of auditions just helps the directors make final decisions on a few roles.
If a student is cast, they will be notified on Sunday, May 1st and rehearsals will start the following week. With the end of the school year, we expect to work with students as scheduling conflicts are communicated early and often. But once June comes, we expect cast members to prioritize the show and agree not to miss any rehearsals.
Cast members are asked to pay a participation fee of $65 that helps us offset production costs and includes the price of a cast t-shirt. Scholarships to help with this fee are also available.
Performances will happen on June 15, 16, 17, 18!
