The Salvation Army is proud to host the auditions for Dalton Little Theatre's 2018 Y.E.T. Production of "Willy Wonka, Jr." This production has been licensed by Music Theatre International. This year the musical is directed by Douglas McClure (our director of The Salvation Army) and produced by Margaret Zeisig.
All children will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the audition and first rehearsal. Transportation cannot be provided to cast and crew members.
Auditioning for Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. can be a challenging experience. That's why we have prepared the following excerpts to help you get ready to "Break a leg." You can find all of the information about the auditions by visiting https://douglasmcclure.me/resources/willy-wonka-jr-information-dlt-2018/.
We hope to have a downloadable version of the auction packet by the end of this week.
All cast members will be singing and need to prepare the following songs: The Candy Man (the Kids part) and Oompa-Loompa 1 (ALL). Also, all cast members need to be familiar with the James or Matilda.
Each character has a breakdown, sides (SCRIPT), and a small excerpt from the score to rehearse for your audition. These need to be prepared in addition to the songs and script excerpt mentioned above. We will have musical accompaniment tracks during the rehearsal and performance.
There will also be a quick audition for choreography. There is nothing to prepare for that section.
In addition to cast members, we are also looking for a few crew members to help with staging, costumes, ushering, and other tasks.
Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights from 6-8p, starting May 7, 2018. We also might have two Saturday morning (9-11a) workshops in May for concentrated cast rehearsals.
