Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of this magically sweet adventure at The New Theatre on Main!

Child Auditions: Sunday, August 28 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (kids only!)

Adult Auditions: Sunday, August 28 and Monday, August 29 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Callbacks: Tuesday August 30 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. You will be notified before noon on August 30 if you are needed at callbacks. Callbacks will consist of cold readings from the script, and any potential oompa loompas will learn a very simple dance. Non-dancers don’t worry! This is not a dance heavy show. Most of the “dancing” will be more of light choreographed blocking.
