2017 Audition Updates (As of 3.21.17: after all cities)
"...You can't stop the beat!"
And who would want to? With so many talented performers sharing their time with us, this has been an exhilarating and entertaining process. With the conclusion of our New York City auditions, we have wrapped up the 2017 MTWichita Talent Search.
This year we have spent time with a record number of artists - 1,228! - and although we don't really think in terms of "numbers," this represents a wonderfully broad canvas of contemporary performers, whose talents can be enjoyed on Broadway as well as in some of the nation's most effective performing arts programs.
We saw top-flight artists in every city: 429 in New York, 77 in Ann Arbor, 170 in Chicago, 164 in Oklahoma City, and 185 in Wichita, plus 203 Kansas teens and kids.
What a challenge it is, narrowing this abundance of awesomeness down to the 24 or so actors who are being invited to join us for the full season. We are also delighted that quite a few of this season's leading roles will be performed by members of the resident company.
We are in the process of making offers now, and below we have posted the names of actors who are being offered jobs with the summer company (This list does not include guest stars who may join us for a show or two.)
If you have any questions, please email Nancy Reeves, and we'll do our best to provide answers. Thanks again to everyone who shared their time and talent with us!
