Auditions: The Sound of Music


Come prepared with a 1 minute monologue and 1 minute of a song of your choice.

Some roles may be double cast.

Show dates will be August 12-22 at Amelia Musical Playhouse.  Initial rehearsals will be held on our outdoor stage until it is safe for us all to be inside. 

At this time we are not sure if the show will be on our stage Under the Stars, but are optimistically planning on an indoor show.

Rehearsal schedule will be available after we see audition sheets for conflicts.

 If you are not able to come to auditions on April 19, contact the director, Jill Dillingham, at AMP 904-277-3455  or to schedule an early audition.
