Auditions Announced for WILLY WONKA JR! at Voices of Broadway

VOB_logoVoices of Broadway is excited to announce auditions for their summer 2021 musical, Willy Wonka Jr.!  Please note: this VOB production is open to all ages (per COVID-adjusted licensing agreement with MTI), but emphasis will be on a youth-centered cast. Cast will be selected – not all that audition will be invited to participate.

Voices of Broadway is an educational program, offering a fully-staged theatrical experience, with instruction for both what goes on onstage and backstage. There is a $100 fee to participate. Cast members will receive a show t-shirt (included in the fee). Limited tuition assistance and scholarships are available. $25 minimum deposit as a script fee upon acceptance of role. Cast members keep their script book for this show.

Auditions and rehearsals will be at Firmly Rooted Ministries, 495 Ludlow St, Greendale, IN 47025 and Community Fellowship Church, 505 Bielby Rd, Lawrenceburg, IN.

APRIL 10: 10:30-2 PM Auditions (CHANGE!) AT FIRMLY ROOTED MINISTRIES

APRIL 13: 6-8 PM Auditions AT COMMUNITY FELLOWSHIP CHURCH

For questions, contact info@voicesofindiana.org

Slots are to help with managing the audition times, but be prepared to wait as needed. Walk-ins will be seen as time allows.

To reserve a slot, visit https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0944adaa29aafb6-willy.

For your audition, please prepare 16-32 bars of a song that is NOT from the show. Bring your sheet music for the accompanist, as a cappella singing is discouraged. (No pre-recorded tracks, either.) An accompanist will be available.

Auditionees will be asked to read from the script. No dance audition required. No call backs.

Bring a resume, if you have one, and a list of known conflicts from May 17 through July 17.

Production dates are July 8-10.

Show synopsis:

The delicious adventures of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film, in addition to a host of fun new songs, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth. Now in the updated Binder format!

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory — or suffer the consequences.

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. has a flexible cast size with many featured and ensemble roles, including the singing and dancing Oompa Loompas.
