Lots of important info – please read!
Thank you for your interest in auditioning for HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL! We are so excited to see what you’ve got. We’ve had a huge turnout in signups, so I wanted to share some information to help things run as smoothly as possible!

Vocal auditions will be held at Waukesha Civic Theatre on the second floor. 264 W Main St, Waukesha, WI 53186. Check in with Stage Management upon arrival. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to ensure we keep things running.

Dance auditions will be held at the Schuetze Recreation Center (just down the road from the theatre) starting at 2pm. 1120 Baxter St, Waukesha, WI 53186. If you are only auditioning for an adult role, you do not need to attend dance auditions.

– Performers under the age of 16 will not be considered for any role. Performers under the age of 18 will not be considered for any role that requires physical/sexual contact on stage. (Note: An Intimacy Director will be on staff to work with those parts of the production.)

What if I can’t attend vocal or dance auditions?
If you are unable to attend either the vocal or dance auditions but would like to be considered, you will need to submit video materials by Saturday, September 24th at 2pm. We would like to see an in person/virtual vocal audition from everyone, and an in person/virtual dance audition for any of the teen roles.

If you were unable to get a vocal audition slot because they were full, you have a couple of options. Either submit a virtual audition or come in person and join the waiting list. (We will do our best, but we can not guarantee we will be able to see you while our accompanist is available. In that case, we will listen to vocal auditions using tracks during the dance auditions.)

Submitting Virtually – what should I include?
1-2 minutes of a song in the style of the show. (Using music tracks is preferred.)
