Thank you for your interest in Blue Water Theatre Company's production of The Wind in the Willows.
In-person auditions are held at 605 Rice St. E., Wayzata, MN 55391. Street parking is available. Walk up the driveway on Walker Ave. to enter doors at the back.
Auditions are for actors going into Grades 3-8 and are held on July 25th and July 26th. Please sign up for one 5-minute audition slot on one of the days. Come 5-10 minutes before your audition time. Here's what actors can expect when they arrive:
- Check in at the table in the lobby.
- Hand in a headshot labeled with your name (photocopy of a casual picture is fine) or have your picture taken at check in.
- When your name is called, you will go into the theatre to sing part of the song from the show that you have practiced. Two song choices will be posted on our website. You will sing along to the audio provided. The director will have you sing part of the song (less than 2 minutes of singing).
- Next you will read from the script. Part of the script will be posted on our website. You get to decide which character you will be. Theatre volunteers will read the parts of the other characters.
That’s it! If you can't make it to auditions at the theatre on July 25th or 26th, you can send a video instead. For your video, sing up to 2 minutes of one of the songs and do the reading, too. You can read all of the parts yourself or have someone in your family read the extra parts (off-camera). Email your video to [email protected] by noon on Wednesday, July 26th. Include your full name and WILLOWS AUDITION in the subject line of the email.
If the director needs more time to see some of the actors in order to decide who will play which part, they will send an invitation to callbacks via email by 10:00 pm on Wednesday, July 26th. The email will be sent to the adult listed as Parent/Guardian 1 on the Actor Audition Form. Callbacks will be held from 5:00-7:00 pm on Thursday, July 27th. If you are invited to callbacks, you will stay for the full two hours (if you can). If you aren’t invited to callbacks or can’t come, don’t worry. You still might get a part in the show. The director could even decide that callbacks aren’t needed for anyone. The final cast list will be posted on our website on The Wind in the Willows audition page by 10:00 pm on Thursday, July 27th.
