CAST AUDITION INFORMATION
Please be sure to attend the informational meeting prior to auditions.
After this meeting, you will be able to sign up for an audition time for the following week (the second week of school)!! At the audition, please bring in a typed resume that focuses on any singing, acting and/or dancing background that you might have. Focus on experiences that will benefit your career on stage. Also, please bring a photo of you so that we can see your face. It does not need to be a professional head shot picture, just one that shows your face. A school picture will do. But it needs to represents you, so make it be your best.
We will ask you to do a 1 minute acting monologue. We will help you find one if you can’t find one on the internet this summer.
Next, you will sing. You will choose your own song. Think serious musical theater or folk song or gospel song that fits THIS show. Choose something that fits your voice the best. This song should be prepared ahead of time. It must be memorized!!!!!! You will need to have sheet music for our accompanist to play from.
Our accompanist is a professional and will follow you at the piano. Don’t worry about following them.
Next, SING. We want to see some acting as you sing it to us. Remember that in a show like this, the words ARE THE DIALOGUE that tells the story.
If you are interested in possibly a larger role or one that includes a vocal solo, you should also have at least ONE additional song to sing for us. As a 9th grader, this is not necessary at all. But, if you are interested in pushing yourself more, you may choose your own song from another Broadway show. Like in the real world of auditioning, please pick the BEST 16 measures of the song, and sing those for us! We will not have time for you to sing the entire song for us.

TECH CREW INFORMATION
TECH CREWS, unlike the cast and the orchestra, do not have the same schedules every week. Depending on the different crews and the projects being worked on, your crews will meet as posted. We will post the crew schedules on the stage door, as well as on the TECH PAGE under the BACK DOOR TAB on our website, wlwmusical.com.
For our shows, we offer some of the most professional theatrical tech experiences available to a high school student. We will then be building lots of other parts for the show.. It’s an amazing experience which you won’t want to miss!
Here are some of the areas that we will need students working on crews. Which interest you the most?
Costumes, Lighting, Makeup, Hair & Wigs, Prosthetics, Props, Publicity, Set Construction, Set Painting, Lighting, Sound, Special Effects, Stage Management/Show Tech Crew (backstage run crew), Assistant to the Director, House Management, Art, Rigging and so much more.
Are you a former BATS crew member? Make sure and let us know that since you will then be put on the ‘experienced list’ for our crews at WLW. We have at least 6 former BATS crew members, who did Tech at WLW, and now are in university studying it professionally. Some are already working in the entertainment business. It’s the place to be!!
