Auditions for Into the Woods
on Saturday, September 13
and Sunday, September 14, 2014
at the Westchester Playhouse
Kentwood Players will hold open auditions for the Tony Award winning musical Into the Woods,
music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by James Lapine,
on September 13, 2014 from 11am-3pm and on Sunday, September 14 from 6-10pm. Callbacks will be held on Monday, September 15 from 7:30-10pm. Auditions and performances take place at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue, Westchester, CA 90045.
Performance dates are November 14 to December 20 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm, with two possible Thursday night performances on December 11 and 18. This is a non-equity, non-paid production directed by Shawn K. Summerer with musical direction by Catherine Rahm, produced by Lori Marple-Pereslete and Tony Pereslete by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
Join Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Rapunzel, Jack the Giant Slayer, and many other famous storybook characters as they each venture into the foreboding woods in search of magical items, love, money, or simply a purpose in life. This classic mash-up of Grimm’s fairy tales teaches all of us the true consequences of what it means to “get your wish.”
Those auditioning should arrive early to sign-in. Please bring a current headshot and resume with you as well as your calendar. A tentative rehearsal schedule will be posted at auditions and you will be asked to note any conflicts. All auditioners must prepare 32 bars of a Sondheim song (does not need to be from this show) and will also read short scenes from the script. An accompanist and script sides will be provided.
The director requests that you be familiar with the play and its characters. Please email the production staff at
with any questions about the auditions.
To meet the Into the Woods production team and learn more about Kentwood Players, the public is invited to attend our general membership meetings, which are free and held on the third Wednesday of each month at
7:30 pm at the Westchester Playhouse located two blocks west of the San Diego Freeway and two blocks north of Manchester at 8301 Hindry Avenue in Westchester, CA 90045.
