Auditions

Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts frequently holds auditions for actors and musicians. Check this page regularly to stay up to date on opportunities.

—————————————-

The Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts is pleased to announce auditions for youth/teens for:

  1. Our next Wagon Wheel Junior Production, Rockin’ Robin Hood. (for youth ages 9-18)
  2. Our Professional Theatre holiday show of the world’s best-loved family musical, The Sound of Music. Casting the roles of the Von Trapp children.
    • Frederich (to play age 14) is proud to be a boy. He has a tough exterior and is very much trying to be “the man” of the family; desperately needs his father.
    • Louisa (to play age 13) is clever and full of mischief. She is the master of pranks and enjoys pulling them on others. She has a rebellious attitude and misses her mother a great deal.
    • Kurt (to play age 10) wants to be 11 and introduces himself as “11-almost”. He is the second boy and the middle of the children. He is outspoken against the previous governesses.
    • Brigitta (to play age 9) is smart, very perceptive and always tells the truth whether you like it or not. She’s an avid reader and suspicious of “Uncle Max”.
    • Marta (to play age 7) is one of the quietest Von Trapps. She loves the color pink, is very inquisitive, smart and gentle.
    • Gretl (to play age 5) is the youngest Von Trapp. She is very quiet when first introduced by her father. She is sweet, loving and wants attention.
    • Due to COVID19 we will be double casting some of the roles.

Both shows will be auditioned at the same time. Simply fill out the form when you arrive stating which show or shows you wish to be considered for. You can audition for just the WWJR show, The Sound of Music, or both! Dates, Location, and information below.
