WHERE:

At Home Made Theater’s Wilton Mall headquarters, near JCPenney. As we may be in the
Wilton Mall past mall hours, please use Home Made Theater’s “back” entrance. To find this
entrance, drive around to the exterior entrance to JCPenney (the side of the mall facing BJ’s). To
the right of JC Penney is a loading dock. Walk down the sidewalk of the loading dock (with the
wall to Penneys on your left) to the door at the end. Once through the door follow the hallway
to Home Made Theater’s entrance on the right. There is a sign and the door will be open.

SYNOPSIS:

The award winning, family friendly musical that we all know and love is coming to Home Made
Theater. A tuneful, heartwarming story, it is based on the real life story of the von Trapp Family
singers, one of the world’s best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World
War II. Maria is the tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey who becomes a governess in the
home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, and brings a new love of life and music
into the home.

FOR THE AUDITION:

ADULTS (INCLUDING ROLF AND LIESL): Please prepare 16 bars of a song from the show.
Readings (NOT from the script) will be provided. Readings from the script will be at callbacks.
Dancing will be at callbacks.
CHILDREN: Will be taught part of “My Favorite Things” and will then sing by themselves. Some
