Willy Wonka Auditions Minnesota – 1467527
12-17-14 – Minneapolis, MN>Rapid City, SD – Willy Wonka Auditions! Minnesota

Dancing – there will be a short dance segment which will be taught to everyone and will be ‘performed’ as a group(s).

Singing – each person should prepare a brief, memorized, a cappella (no piano) portion of a song. This could be the chorus, refrain or a few phrases of a song that you choose. We will give you a starting pitch from the piano if you request. If you can’t think of a song to do, a favorite Christmas song would be great! (If you are interested in a specific named role, there is likely a solo for that role. I would highly encourage you to prepare a portion of the song or the refrain of that solo piece. As we do not yet have music for the show, please search on YouTube for the name of the song (roles/songs listed below*) and watch other community theatre/school productions or the 1971 movie to prepare your singing audition. All five of the main children have solos in the stage version as compared to only two of the children in the movie.)

Reading – in groups, you will act out readings from various roles in the script. Depending on timing, I may mix up the groups to see different people reading together. (If you are interested in the role of Augustus Gloop or Mrs. Gloop, please come prepared with a brief reading (listed below**) in a German accent. The reading does not need to be memorized and is only needed if you are specifically auditioning for one of the Gloops.) If you are only interested in a non-speaking role (townspeople/chorus, cooks or oompa loompas) then you will not need to participate in the reading audition portion.

The party is to celebrate the birthday of patriarch Big Daddy Pollitt, “the Delta’s biggest cotton-planter”,[2] and his return from the Ochsner Clinic with what he has been told is a clean bill of health. All family members (except Big Daddy and his wife, Big Mama) are aware of Big Daddy’s true diagnosis: he is dying of cancer. His family has lied to Big Daddy and Big Mama to spare the aging couple from pain on the patriarch’s birthday but, throughout the course of the play, it becomes clear that the Pollitt family has long constructed a web of deceit for itself.
