Please prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre song in the style of the show. Please remember to bring sheet music copied in a three-ring binder; an accompanist will be provided. NO ACCAPELLA SINGING WILL BE ACCEPTED. Your selection should demonstrate both your vocal range and acting abilities.

ROLES FOR TOTS (Grades K-3)                                                                          Back after a successful bridging of young performers for THE WIZARD OF OZ, our TOTS roles allow younger lovers of Musical Theatre to participate in a real show! These students will be called to minimal rehearsals and will be featured as the Snow Chorus & part of Oaken’s Family.

JUNIOR COMPANY ROLES (Grades 3-9)                                                    YOUNG ANNA & ANNA (2 separate roles) Are the young Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Filled with a tremendous amount of light, energy, and love, Anna is a hopelessly optimistic extrovert at all ages, but as she grows older, she longs for connection with others, especially her sister, Elsa. Each version of this warm and determined princess requires a strong singer with great comic timing.

YOUNG ELSA & ELSA (2 separate roles) Are the elder Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Next in line for the throne, Elsa has been born with magical powers that can overwhelm her when she becomes afraid and harm others if not handled with care. Fearful of hurting anyone, especially her beloved sister, Anna, Elsa becomes anxious and withdrawn as she grows older, before eventually learning to take control of, and become confident in, her powers which she masterfully uses to manipulate the Snow Chorus.

KING AGNARR The warm-hearted ruler of Arendelle is committed to protecting both his family and the Townspeople from his eldest daughter’s powers.

QUEEN IDUNA Possesses a sense of rightness and kindness that guides her in her protection of her two young girls. A daughter of the Northern Nomads, this queen has the ability to communicate with the Hidden Folk of the mountains and so understands Elsa’s powers deeply; look for an actor who can portray this sense of compassion.

PADDIE & BULDA (2 separate roles) Mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk who have a soft spot for “strays.” Ever-benevolent, these parental figures want what’s best for Kristoff, even if they are a bit misguided in their efforts.

BISHOP Officiates the coronation and passing of the crown to Elsa. This spiritual supervisor must communicate to the Townspeople of Arendelle in a serious and formal manner.

KRISTOFF A hardworking ice harvester. Kristoff has a sarcastic veneer and a rough-around-the-edges exterior that hides a big heart. Taken in by the Hidden Folk when he was young, he loves Pabbie and Bulda dearly, but is a bit of a loner with a reindeer for a best friend- until he meets Anna.

SVEN A reindeer of few words, fiercely loyal pal to Kristoff, and loves giving the ice harvester a hard time. Look for a performer with good comic timing and terrific physical acting skills who can devise a strong movement vocabulary to bring this furry charmer to life.

HANS The ambitious Prince of the Southern Isles and overlooked thirteenth son of a king. Hans constantly strives to find a way to make good and stand out. He boasts an exceedingly charming facade that fools everyone into believing he’s Prince Charming, when really, he’s just a jerk.

WESELTON A visiting duke who possesses a huge inferiority complex. A bombastic, overbearing sycophant, Weselton’s sole purpose is to hobnob with influencers and royalty. Look for an actor who can portray the narrow-minded naysayer with over-the-top gusto.

OLAF The magical snowman created by Anna and Elsa when they were young. Olaf is endearingly delighted by everything – especially the idea of summer. Goofy and sweet, Olaf should possess a childlike innocence and excellent comic timing.

OAKEN An exceedingly cheerful and convivial wandering salesperson and ardent devotee to all things cozy and comfortable. Oaken’s “Hygge” is a showstopper, so were looking to cast an actor who can portray the peppy peddler’s infectious warmth with flair and good humor.
