2023 Summer Season Audition Dates
Thank you to everyone that auditioned or submitted for our 2023 Summer Season. We were amazed by the amount of talent we saw this year and can’t thank you enough for sharing your time and talents with us. At this time, auditions are concluded and we will no longer be taking any submissions. We will be casting over the next few weeks and will update this page to inform you once casting is finalized.
Wagon Wheel Junior
Wagon Wheel Junior presents two full musicals each year. The cast is comprised of students age 9 to 18 from across the region. Students of any skill and experience level are welcome to audition. The rehearsals operate like our professional theatre productions, with the rehearsals lasting just two weeks ending with three performances on the final weekend. The Wagon Wheel Theatre is dedicated to practicing inclusive, diverse, and non-traditional casting. We encourage all youth from the greater Warsaw area and beyond to audition.

SOTL pre-selects audition materials and will provide the materials when you register to audition.
Principal players will be paid at $63 per rehearsal and $80 per concert. Section members will be paid at $50 per rehearsal and $63 per concert. There is no compensation for mileage.
