CAST LIST: Into the Woods Jr.

First of all I am overwhelmed by how wonderful you all were. Besides your talent I was so impressed with your generosity of spirit. I have never been to an audition where I saw so much sincere support for one another and joy in each other's successes. That makes this even harder. I want each of you to know that I try to be as completely fair and objective as possible. I cast who I think is sincerely best for the role, I do not play favorites. Please know that if you didn't make it, it does not mean you did not do well, I could have cast 3 shows with the amount of talent I had to pool from.  It just means that this role might not have been the right fit for you at this time. Please get all the education and experience you can for next time! We have Acting Classes starting in January and  Musical Theater Camp in the Summer. Also, keep in mind this is the Teen Show and there were very few younger people cast. Thank you so much for making this such a positive experience for everyone involved.

CALLBACKS: Into the Woods JR


We had such a wonderful turn out! Thank you to all who auditioned. Please know this is our Teen Show so I will not be calling back very many younger children even though you were wonderful. Also, this is a relatively small show with VERY specific needs for each part. If you were not called back, please keep trying. Casting is not about who performed better or worse, it is about the part that is right for you, if it wasn't right this time, it might be next time. We have Acting classes coming up in January which are a great way to hone those acting skills and to be in a small performance without nerve racking auditions:) Go to for upcoming events in Children's Theater.

Kim Hirt
AACT Children's Theater Director


PLEASE be on time. Also, if you are new to Theater, make sure you are prepared to do a lot of "hurry-up and wait!" We are as efficient as possible, but we want to make sure we see everything we need to from each actor and can't always predict how long it will take. Please be generous with each other and no matter what happens in the end, this can be a positive learning experience for everyone.

Remember you can go to to prepare for tomorrow.

Many people are listed on more than one character. PLEASE READ ALL CHARACTER lists carefully. Also this is just tentative, I may have you read for something else, please be flexible.
