The King’s Academy Theatre Company Willy Wonka Casting Call

 

Willy_WonkaAttention all present 6th and 7th grade students:

Auditions will be held On May 20-22 for our Middle School production of Willy Wonka which will be premiered October 27-November 1. Please know that the production of Willy Wonka will be a first semester project for all those students in Junior High Performing Arts and In Him. All rehearsals will be held during class time which will allow our students to play after school sports. Please know however, we will hold dress rehearsals starting October 20 after school for the entire week and the show will run starting October 27 and run for the entire week. Allowing our students to rehearse this project in class gives them opportunities to take part in other TKA activities. Middle School students involved with Willy Wonka next fall must be enrolled in either Junior High Performing Arts or In Him.

Auditions are as follows:

All 6th grade students interested in auditioning for a principal role will audition Monday, May 19 from 3:15-6:00 in the secondary choir room. Students need to be familiar with the story, but no other preparation will be required. Each student will have time to prepare a scene as well as sing through a portion of the score under the instruction of Mr. Snyder. This process is not intended to be a fearful experience, the instructors involved work very hard to make this an enjoyable educational opportunity.

All 7th grade students interested in auditioning for a principal role will audition Wednesday, May 21 and Thursday, May 22 during their designated fine art class. Students need to be familiar with the story, but no other preparation will be required.
