Lines for Auditions

Here are lines for Auditions. You do not need to memorize just practice so you feel comfortable with the words. At auditions say the lines in a big voice with lots of facial expression and excitement in your voice. The lines are from Willy Wonka because Joseph has very few speaking parts. I still want cast members in Joseph to read some lines with expression because you will need to sing with wonderful facial expression and energy. (Augustus' lines are mixed through out the script, so there isn't a page that works for him. His TV spot is a song and he speaks with German accent)

Sopranos, Second Sopranos, and Alto's with extended mix/belt range. Vibrant, energetic, charming performers, with superior voices. Movement and dance will be needed.

High energy and very active. Singers/dancers/actors. Need to be able to develop strong unique characters. Able to portray wide range of performance styles.

Parts Available for Willy Wonka

  • WILLY WONKA/CANDY MAN
    Willy Wonka is an enigmatic character; at once mysterious and mischievous but also charismatic.
  • CHARLIE BUCKET
    The role of Charlie Bucket is the emotional heart and soul of the musical. The actor performing Charlie should have an unchanged voice and lots of pluck and enthusiasm. Think a male “Annie.”
  • GRANDPA JOE
    Grandpa Joe is the grandfather we all wish we had when we were Charlie’s age. He is caring, patient, sweet and always reminds Charlie to remain cheerful. Cast an actor who can be kind and funny. The role sings a bit, but the singing is secondary.
  • MR. AND MRS. BUCKET
    These are great roles for young people who have nice voices, and are natural nurturers. Both sing solos; Mr. Bucket performs the number “Think Positive” with Charlie and Mrs. Bucket sings “Cheer Up, Charlie” with Mr. Bucket and Grandpa Joe.
  • PHINEOUS TROUT
    Phineous is the reporter who announces the winners of the Golden Ticket contest throughout the show. The role requires some singing, either a boy or a girl can play the role.
  • OOMPA-LOOMPA CHORUS
  • AUGUSTUS GLOOP
    Augustus is the overachieving eater who represents the evils of eating too much. Augustus sings “I Eat More!” along with his mother and Phineous Trout.
  • MRS. GLOOP
    Mrs. Gloop is Augustus’ mother who has overindulged her son with food. She accompanies Augustus on the tour of the factory, and sings “I Eat More!” which is one of the more difficult songs in the score for young people. The role requires a character actress who isn’t afraid to take positive risks both in her acting and her singing.
  • MIKE TEAVEE
    For this adaptation Mike is not just a TV junky. He is also addicted to video games, the Internet and any other mindnumbing technological device. Mike is bratty, loud and obnoxious. He does not know the word “no.” Mike and Ms. Teavee sing “I See It All On TV”.
  • MS. TEAVEE
    Ms. Teavee is a take on all television moms of the distant past. She’s perfectly put together and a bit vacant. She sings “I See It All On TV”.
  • VIOLET BEAUREGARDE
    Gum chewer extraordinaire, Violet hails from Snellville, Georgia, so it’s nice if she has a Southern American accent, but not necessary. Violet should stand in stark contrast to Veruca Salt. Veruca is a wealthy refined brat; Violet is more of a bluecollar, middle class brat. She sings “Chew It” along with Willy Wonka.                                                 
  • VERUCA SALT
    Veruca is the wealthy, class-conscious, spoiled brat. She is often portrayed with a high British accent that is by no means required (brats come in all nationalities). Veruca’s solo number “I Want It Now”.                                                  
  • GRANDMA JOSEPHINA, GRANDMA GEORGINA, and GRANDPA GEORGE
    Charlie’s three grandparents are mainly non-singing character roles.
  • JAMES
    James is Charlie’s friend from school. He has a few lines and sings the introduction of “The Candy Man” along with Matilda and Charlie.
  • MATILDA
    Matilda is also a schoolmate of Charlie’s, but she’s a bit of bully. Matilda has a few lines and sings the introduction of “The Candy Man” along with James and Charlie.                                                                                           
  • The CANDY MAN                                                                                                                                                                             Willy Wonka's eyes and ears on the outside of his chocolate factory. Sings " The Candy Man".                                      
  • THE CANDY MAN KIDS
    These kids sing and dance in “The Candy Man”
  • CHORUS OF COOKS
    The Cooks appear during “I Eat More!” presenting Augustus with a smorgasbord of food choices.                               
  • MRS. BEAUREGARDE
    Mrs. Beauregard is a teacher of geography and has invested a great deal of hard-earned money on therapy for her orally fixated daughter, with less than stellar results. Her accent should match Violet’s.

    MR. SALT
    Mr. Salt’s solution to most problems is to buy his way out. He is upper class, and usually portrayed with a high British accent. (But this accent is not necessary—just make sure Veruca and Mr. Salt sound like they hail from the same place.) He sings very little.
  • SQUIRRELS
    The squirrels are non-speaking, non-singing roles.

Alice

Performances are today, Break a Leg Everyone. DVD's are available please talk to Kristal to order one. They also have up close pictures of the cast. Only $10.00.

The Jabberwocky Parts

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves 
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:   Brooklyn

All mimsy were the borogoves, 
      And the mome raths outgrabe.  Henry

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son! 
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!  Joseph

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun 
      The frumious Bandersnatch!”   Celeste 

He took his vorpal sword in hand; 
      Long time the manxome foe he sought—  Nate

So rested he by the Tumtum tree 
      And stood awhile in thought.    Paige 

And, as in uffish thought he stood, 
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,     Michael

Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, 
      And burbled as it came!                          Rose

One, two! One, two! And through and through 
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!   Connor

He left it dead, and with its head 
      He went galumphing back.               Hannah 

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? 
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!     Grace 

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!” 
      He chortled in his joy.                 Gwen
