2018 Audition Updates (As of 3.20.18)

"… We’ve got parts to perform, hearts to warm … "

And what a heart-warming journey it's been, having so many accomplished and dedicated artists audition for us, and express their willingness to be part of our summertime troupe!

All told, we saw 1152 artists: 62 in Ann Arbor, 164 in Chicago, 153 in Wichita, 158 in Oklahoma City, and 408 in New York City, plus 207 talented Wichita teens and children.

With such marvelous talent we could populate our season three times over, with equally spectacular quality. So, narrowing the names down for our final list has been very challenging, exciting, and painful.

Due to the construction of this year’s shows and the sizes of the costume packages, we must keep our cast numbers smaller than we'd like. We can offer jobs to about two dozen resident company members, plus various featured roles in each show.

After considering a wide variety of factors, we have created a list of folks who will now be receiving definite offers. 

Many terrific talents who have worked with us previously are unfortunately not appearing on this year’s list, due to this season's specific needs. We hope our alumni know they always remain part of this family, no matter what happens from year to year.

If your name is listed in the confirmed list below, you will be getting a specific offer from us in the next few days. And please contact us if you have any questions. (This list does not include potential guest artists for each show.)

Thanks again to everyone, for sharing your time and artistry with us!
