Youth & Local Adult Auditions

The Glimmerglass Festival will audition youth and adult for roles in the 2022 Festival productions on March 11 – 13, 2022.

The company is casting youth ages 6 to 18 to perform in three productions for the 2022 Festival. The company will be casting youth lead performers for Rodgers/Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music ; acting speaking and non-speaking roles for Bizet’s Carmen; and both leading and chorus singing roles in The Jungle Book, a new youth opera with music by Kamala Sankaram and libretto by Kelley Rourke.

The company is also casting adult chorus roles for The Sound of Music and non-speaking acting roles for Tenor Overboard, a new comedic opera written by Ken Ludwig featuring music by Rossini. 

Singers should prepare one age-appropriate song from American folk, musical theater or school music repertoire (no rock or pop music). Singers should also bring a copy of sheet music for the provided accompanist.

Music and staging rehearsal dates and information specific to each production will be available at the auditions, but performers must be available for on-stage rehearsals and performances beginning mid-June through late August.

All applicants and their parents/guardians must be fully vaccinated in order to participate in live auditions. You are required to present proof of vaccination upon entry for all parties to the audition. If you do not, your audition will be forfeited. Masks may only be removed for the audition, and must remain on at all other times inside the venue.
