Auditions for the Summer 2015 Show!


Community Players of Southwestern Wisconsin invites everyone to come and join the magic of Mary Poppins!  Tryouts for their summer production will be held May 26, 27 and 28 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Richland Center City Auditorium.  This much-loved show will presented for two consecutive weekends in early August, 2015.

Male or female, young or old, we have a part for you!  Jane and Michael are the stars of the show, along with Bert the Chimney Sweep, Mary Poppins and Mr. and Mrs. Banks.  Parts for mature players include Admiral Boom, the bank chairman, the housekeeper Mrs. Brill, and the Bird Woman.  There are twenty-six named roles available, and we are planning on having a large cast in addition to the main players.

People coming to auditions will be asked to fill out an audition sheet.  They then will be asked to try a few dance steps by Choreographer Monica Rynes, to sing a little, and to read from the script.  Singing a song from the show is appreciated but by no means required.  Any song that shows us how well you sing will do. 

Choral direction will be provided by Erin Starks and Musical direction by Chris Simonson, both veteran musical theater conductors.  Persons interested in being in the band are also encouraged to come to auditions or contact us by e-mail. 

And those who would just like to help out backstage-including the crew that will make Mary FLY-should also stop by during auditions or contact us.  For questions or further information, please contact Andrew Sharp at 647-7373 or by e-mail at
