INTO THE WOODS - AUDITIONS
Auditions will take place on Sunday 14th April from 11am - 4pm at OPEN EALING. Please have a look below at the character descriptions and audition song tracks and lyrics. Please then let us know at the bottom which part you would like to audition for by filling out the form.
The Baker is a good-hearted, likeable person who believes he can take on the Witch's curse all by himself. At first, this confidence and his desire to have a child drives him, but he soon learns he needs his wife's help to accomplish the goal. Both personable and a strong strength of conviction.
The Baker's Wife is a strong, determined and loving woman whose desire to have a child drives the action of the whole show. Her storyline helps tie all the characters’ storylines together. Requires a good sense of comedic timing.
Cinderella is a simple girl whose one wish is to go to the Festival. Unfortunately, when her wish comes true, she learns that wishes sometimes come with consequences. Cinderella’s inner beauty always shines through her sometimes clumsy and awkward exterior. Charming while maintaining a sense of humor.
Jack is an energetic young man who is always looking for an adventure. He begins this show as a simple young boy (his best friend is a cow), but by the end of the show he learns a few valuable lessons.
Little Red starts the show as a loud, pushy, glutton who happily manipulates people and situations to get her way. Eventually, she learns some valuable lessons and softens around the edges.
The Witch is an ancient, mysterious and manipulative woman who will do anything possible to regain her beauty and protect Rapunzel. While she may seem old and haggard, she still has the strength to control other people. This role is perfect for a good character actress and singer who can physically and vocally portray the complexities of the role.
The narrator is the storyteller who speaks directly to the audience. This character helps control the pacing of the show and always needs to be ready for their next entrance, as they pop in and out throughout the story. Find a charismatic girl or boy with great diction for this large speaking role with minimal singing.
Raising a son and running a farm all by herself has made Jack's Mother a bit frazzled and most definitely overworked. Jack’s Mother is a great role for a character actress with solid comic timing.
The Wolf is a sly and dangerous character intently focused on attacking Little Red Riding Hood.
Cinderella’s Prince is a conceited man who adamantly pursues Cinderella and can’t take no for an answer. When not chasing her, he is trying to show up Rapunzel’s Prince. This role requires an actor who can portray arrogance while still being likeable.
Rapunzel's Prince is the pompous and arrogant brother of Cinderella’s Prince. Sibling rivalry runs rampant between the brothers, including each brother’s belief that his lady love is the most beautiful.
Granny is a feisty woman who is not afraid to fight the Wolf face to face. This non-singing role is perfect for a young performer able to make strong character choices.
Just like the name suggests, this is one mysterious man. Everything he does is to help the Baker, but he does not explain his motives until the last moment.
Cinderella' s Mother comforts Cinderella in her one short song.
Cinderella's Stepmother is a mean, evil woman who only cares about her birth children, daughters Florinda and Lucinda. An actress who can portray both the strong distaste the character has for Cinderella as well as the love she showers on her own spoiled daughters.
Cinderella's Father will not win any Father-of-the-Year awards. He doesn't care about his daughter's well-being or her actions.
Cinderella's Stepsisters are spoiled brats who care only about themselves and marrying Cinderella's Prince. Cast two actresses who work well together and are able to portray their cattiness in a bold and comical way.
