Woodford Theatre’s Summer Production Academy, Seussical Jr., audition window opens Saturday, April 18!

For students ages 8-16, the audition window will open Saturday, April 18 and run through Friday, May 15. These auditions will be for admission to the program for the summer, and we will be announcing casting at a later date, as we continue to monitor the impacts of COVID diagnoses in the state, and its impact on programming businesses in the area. As of right now, we are planning on running the program in July, with performances July 24, 25, 26. Rehearsals will run during the day July 6-10, 13-17, and 20-24.*

What to Prepare:

  • Please prepare a 16-32 bar cut from something similar to Seussical Jr. – think of shows with bright, vibrant characters. Once we have received all of the videos, we will distribute portions of the script for cold readings. 
  • Registration FormThis form will take some of your information again, however, it also includes information on the different characters and gives you an opportunity to let us know the roles you are most interested in, as well as any scheduling conflicts you may have for the rehearsal period. Please fill out this form and email it to jenibenavides@woodfordtheatre.com

How to Submit:
Please submit your registration form AND video to jenibenavides@woodfordtheatre.com. She will be compiling the videos to share with the creative team, and should they need to see you for callbacks, we will notify you. Please keep in mind that not being asked for callbacks does not mean not being cast in the show! Once the cast list is finalized, we will send that information out to all auditionees.

*A Note About the Summer Academy Production
The Woodford Theatre staff is monitoring the COVID-19 situation, maintaining a delicate balance of moving our programming forward, while also accounting for any possibilities of other potential changes to, or cancellations in, the Woodford Theatre programming. It is our hope and current plan to run the Summer Academy production of Seussical Jr. –  we would love nothing more than to see our students and patrons sooner rather than later – however, we also recognize (as we’re sure you do too) how unpredictable our current circumstances are. This is why we have created an audition window, and will continue to be as transparent in our communication as possible as we receive updates and evaluate the safest decisions and practices.
