  • You may bring a 1 minute monologue or you may "cold-read" a monologue we will have at the audition without needing to prepare it.
  • Wear clothes you can move in and come prepared to learn some simple choreography.
  • A headshot and/or resume. If you don't have headshots, a recent photo will suffice.

Miscellaneous:

  • Experience is not necessary! The only audition requirement is that you will be between the ages of 14-25 as of June 1st, 2016. Wildwood Summer Theatre is an all-volunteer community theater. WST is a free tuition program. The only fee every member has to pay is a one time $50 membership dues if participating in the production. Need-based financial aid available.
  • Performers not comfortable with singing or dancing also have the chance to be cast in one of the non-singing roles in Spring Awakening.

VIDEO AUDITIONS

Seeing as how a majority of our company is comprised of students, we completely understand how making auditions back home can be difficult. While we strongly recommend an in-person audition, if you are unavailable for both weekends, you may also audition via video. If you choose this route, please follow the directions below.

  • You will need to record yourself singing 16-32 bars of TWO appropriate musical theatre songs. 
  • You will also need to record yourself performing a 1-2 minute monologue.
  • Send the aforementioned video(s) via email to producer@wst.org no later than March 26 at 5:00 PM. Please attach a resume to the email as well.

We are looking forward to seeing your audition!
