Join WOW!

Join WOW!

To join WOW! you must be between the age of 11 and 21. If you are, then you can audition for a part in any of our forthcoming shows. Auditions are held every September.

There are a few things to bear in mind when thinking of joining WOW!:

  • Putting on a show is a commitment. It takes hard work, determination, enthusiasm and energy!
  • Bear in mind our location. WOW auditions, rehearses and performs in the town of Witham in Essex.
  • When you become a member of the cast, you make a commitment to the team to attend rehearsals, to be on time and to have any kit or props.
  • Your parents must agree to your joining. We encourage parents to become actively involved with their children throughout the productions. It is important that parents understand the needs of the child during a show.
  • There is an annual membership fee and there is also a production fee. We aim to keep this modest but in the case of financial hardship the Committee will look at individual cases.
  • Rehearsals towards show week itself are very intense and occur more frequently

If you think you would be interested in joining us then telephone the WOW! Kids Team, Hilary Watling on 01376 511926 or e-mail Hilary at wow.kids.team@wow.org.uk ... and/or subscribe to our Facebook, Twitter or mailing list for updates.

WOW! Workshops

Between shows, WOW! run workshops open to all 11-21 year olds on techniques related to musical theatre. This year, we ran a Book of Mormon workshop in March and further workshops in April, May and June.

WOW! Summer Schools

WOW! ran two summer school weeks again this year: a week for 8-13 year olds and a week for 13+ year olds, both in August.

WOW!'s Next Show

Our next show will be CATS which will run 12-17 February 2018. Auditions for CATS took place in September and the show has been cast. Further information is available on our CATS page.
