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 contact the WOW! Kids Team, e-mail ... and/or subscribe to our Facebook, Twitter or mailing list for updates.
