Child and Teen Audition Results

Many thanks to the 205 Teens and Kids who attended the MTWichita Youth Auditions this year, and who shared their time and talent with us so impressively.

If your name is not seen below, in any of the categories, please don’t be discouraged. We have limited stage space, and there was so much talent! If we don’t have the pleasure of working with you this season, we hope to see you again in the future.

Below are preliminary lists of the young artists we are hoping to have in the various shows, as well as performers to be featured in the Trust Company of Kansas Teen Choir.

There are some casting questions we still have, for which answers won’t be known until after we’ve cast our resident company, including the assignment of any Teen Intern positions. We will have some callbacks for all of the Von Trapp children in the next few weeks. The candidates for those roles have been notified. So, keeping all this in mind, here is today’s list. Please check the different categories, because some names will be found on more than one performing list.

All the Teen Choir artists listed are definitely offered the chance to perform with us, and we hope you’ll do as many of the five different productions as your schedule and interest permit.

All the performers listed for teen ensemble in The Sound of Music are definitely offered that show, and we hope you will join us. Ladies will be nuns, gentlemen will be storm troopers and Austrian citizens.

We tried to assign artists only to shows they requested. Be sure to let us know if we made a mistake. Also, be sure to let us know if we have not listed your name correctly, or the way you prefer. In all cases, let us know whether or not you will be joining us NO LATER THAN MAY 1, by emailing Josh Larson:

After the summer season has begun, the stage managers will be in touch with you about rehearsal schedule and costume fittings. Thanks again for a wonderful, impressive display of talent!
