Children and adult performers to be cast for late 2019 Western Canada Theatre Production

Western Canada Theatre is looking for performers for its upcoming production of The Sound of Music.

The Kamloops theatre organization will begin staging the Von Trapp family’s story in November, but first it needs to fill a few roles.

The play’s adult ensemble is looking for those 18 or older in any vocal range who enjoy singing harmonies and can move about on the stage. Members will portray nuns, party guests, servants or soldiers.

Child performers are also being sought for the Von Trapp children. They include Friedrich, a tough-exterior “man of the family” 14-year-old, the rebellious 13-year-old Louisa, mischievous 10-year old Kurt, nine-year-old book-lover Brigitta, sweet and gentle seven-year-old Marta and six-year-old Gretl.

The time commitment for these acts will run from Nov. 4 to Dec. 11, and the play itself will run from Nov. 28 to Dec. 11 at Sagebrush Theatre.

Auditions will be held over the weekend of June 15 and June 16. The submission deadline is June 3.

Those interested in applying can send their photo along with a resumé or short description of previous theatrical/musical/dance experience to auditions@wctlive.ca or contact Dawn Bergstrom at 250-372-3216 ext. 529 for more information.
