Home Made Theater Holds Open Auditions for The Sound of Music

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Home Made Theater announces open auditions for their June production of The “Sound of Music,” with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. This production will be directed by Dawn Oesch, with musical direction by Richard Cherry, and choreography by Diane Lachtrupp.

The auditions will be held on Sunday, Jan. 22 (children only) starting at 5:30, and Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 23 & 24 (adults, including Liesl and Rolf) starting at 6:30, at Home Made Theater’s headquarters at the Wilton Mall (near JC Penney). Callbacks will be held on Thursday, Jan. 26 starting at 6:30 p.m.

The primary cast consists of five adult men, eight adult women, two boys, and four girls. There will be a small (4-6 person) ensemble. All ethnicities and gender identities are encouraged to attend.

This award winning, family friendly musical is based on the real-life story of the von Trapp Family singers, one of the world’s best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II. Maria is the tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey who becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, and brings a new love of life and music into the home.

For the audition: adults (including those auditioning for Liesl and Rolf) please prepare 16 bars of a song from the show. Children will be taught part of “My Favorite Things” to perform. Readings will be provided. Bring a current photo (cannot be returned) and a resume. Be prepared to list all potential conflicts from the first rehearsal through closing (with the exception of Tech Week and performances, conflicts can be worked around if known about in advance).
