Village Theatre will be holding open call auditions for high school students for their world premier production of Hansel & Gretl & Heidi & Günter.

Youth Requirements:

Show Synopsis:
Gretl – yes, that Gretl – is now a single mom living in modern day Chicago, still suffering from the trauma of her fairytale childhood. Her exceedingly modern kids are fed up with stuffing their pockets full of pebbles, and dream of the impossible: a normal childhood. But when long-lost Uncle Hansel shows up at their doorstep, they are plunged into an unexpected adventure that brings the family together. This smart and bold new musical is a riotous tumble of past and present that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Heidi Meyerhausen: A high school student. Mezzo Soprano. A feisty tween who wants out from under her mother’s long list of crazy rules & traditions… and is willing to take action to make it happen.

Günter Meyerhausen: Heidi’s younger brother. Tenor. A sweet, smart, sensitive, quirky kid who loves doing impressions and has ,until very recently, enjoyed the insular company of his family.

Kevin Chambers: Tenor. Heidi’s classmate and next-door neighbor. An outsider himself, he is observant of others and interested in their lives. A good friend, if anyone would give him a chance.

YOUTH ENSEMBLE: JENNY / BRIGITTA, JULIE / OLGA, BRIAN / KLAUS
Privileged modern-day kids, Brian, Jenny & Julie are products of their time (and not very understanding of differences). Back in 1346, Klaus, Brigitta & Olga are also products of their time, at ease with horrible outcomes and early deaths… and big fans of the legendary Gretl.

Audition/Interview Dates:
July 21st & July 28th from 10am – 4pm

Callbacks or second audition/interview?
August 14th -17th

Audition Requirements:
- Headshot and Resume, this will not be returned to you.
- Please prepare a cut of a musical theatre song no longer than one verse and one chorus. No ballads please! Keep it uptempo and fun!
- Once you are scheduled you will receive a link to four sides from the show. We ask that you pick your favorite and prepare it for the audition as well.
