Kids Auditions

SATURDAY, JANUARY 6TH 

 

The Wichita Theatre is excited to announce auditions for our first children's’ shows of 2018: 

 

“Curious George and the Golden Meatball” and “Sleeping Beauty Kidz”! 

 

Please read the below information and prepare accordingly:

 

These auditions will be held on Saturday, January 6, beginning at 2pm and are for ages 8 to 18.

 

Auditionees must prepare a song cut that is either not longer than 16 bars or does not exceed 30 seconds. The Wichita Theatre will provide options that will be available on this page in the coming days, but auditionees may prepare their own cuts if they so desire. Music cuts she be clearly printed, marked, and in the appropriate key. An accompanist will be provided. CDs, electronic devices, or karaoke tracks will not be allowed.

 

Auditionees must be prepared to perform one of the monologues provided by the Wichita Theatre. Selections will be available on this page in the coming days.

 

Auditions will begin at 2pm. At that point, auditionees must be prepared, present, and have signed in. We suggest arriving a little earlier than 2pm to complete the sign-in process in a timely fashion. At 2pm, the casting team will begin calling auditionees up in groups of 10, and individual auditionees will audition for the casting team in the studio.

 

Auditionees will perform their monologues and song cuts consecutively -- we will not hold different times for different elements of the audition. Auditionees may choose the order in which they deliver their material.

There will be a dance/movement call at 4pm. Please be prepared with clothes, water, and whatever else may be necessary. This will be non-intensive.

Please review the show information below, including show ages, dates, and character breakdowns.

Maleficent

Maleficent is the most demanding role and requires a mature actress capable of carrying difficult solos as well as entire scenes. Maleficent is evil, but very smart. She uses her magic to destroy those who threaten her, but it is her intellect that has created her real power. Maleficent becomes very frustrated with her "slow" Goons, which can be an opportunity to create some comedy with the role. For the magic of Maleficent's dragon transformation, focus and maturity will be key.

Gender: female
