Willy Wonka, Jr. Audition Information (DLT-2018)

Thank you for your interest in being a part of Dalton Little Theatre’s 2018 Y.E.T. Production of “Willy Wonka, Jr.” This production has been licensed by Music Theatre International and you can find more information about it here.

Download a copy of the audition packet here.

Auditions will be April 23-24, 2018 from 6-8p at The Salvation Army, located at 1109 N Thornton Avenue; Dalton, GA 30720. Click here for a map.

All children will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the audition and first rehearsal. Transportation cannot be provided to cast and crew members.

Auditioning for Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. can be a challenging experience. That’s why we have prepared the following excerpts to help you get ready to “Break a leg.”  Feel free to print what you need to get ready for your audition. Each page has a print button.

All cast members will be singing and need to prepare the following songs: The Candy Man (the Kids part) and Oompa-Loompa 1 (ALL). Also, all cast members need to be familiar with the James or Matilda part from this link.

Each character has a breakdown, sides (SCRIPT), and a small excerpt from the score with which to rehearse your audition. These need to be prepared in addition to the songs and script excerpt mentioned above. We will have musical accompaniment tracks during the rehearsal and performance.
