WOW SHOW 17-19 NOVEMBER 2022
WOW aims to offer a realistic experience of musical theatre for talented young performers. Therefore, as in the professional theatre, we always run show auditions and do not cast on the basis of giving everyone a turn. Casting for all shows is done with the sole aim of presenting the best possible production to the highest performance standards.
This principle has been the foundation of WOW’s success for 40 years. Parts are cast on the basis of which member’s performance at audition best matches the creative team’s vision for how they see a particular solo or part being performed in the production.
Casting a compilation show is a very complex task, requiring detailed knowledge of the songs together with careful consideration of each member’s vocal range and delivery and whether their voice fits the style of song. It is also, of course, about the performance, which may include the ability to move or dance in the number. We are fortunate to have a creative team with so much expertise and experience in these areas.
“…..every member will be making a huge contribution towards another show that everyone can feel immensely proud of.“
We want everyone to thrive at WOW and are always delighted to see the progress members make from one audition to another. Above all, however, we want to work with young people at WOW who are happy to be part of a group of ensemble performers. We appreciate that casting can be a disappointing time for members who don’t get something they were hoping for but all members should feel proud to be part of an incredibly strong ensemble, where everybody comes together as a company to entertain our audiences.
This compilation show is no exception and will feature 30 full company numbers!
Whatever their role, every member will be making a huge contribution towards another show that everyone can feel immensely proud of.
