About The Sound of Music: The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household.

On the day of auditions you will need to provide an accompaniment track for your 30 second vocal selection. This can be an mp3/youtube karaoke track on your phone that you have cued up and ready to go or you can use ACT’s internet-connected laptop in the audition room. ACT will provide a speaker and aux cord to connect to mobile devices. You will also be taught a dance combination, so wear clothes and shoes you can dance in. If you would like to learn the dance combination in advance, please look into our Audition Workshops. Break a leg! We’re all rooting for you!

One Act Festival Auditions
Jun 29 @ 10:00 am
Hendersonville Theatre

Hendersonville Theatre is a small theatre that welcomes actors, dancers, and singers of all experience levels. You don’t need any experience to audition. We are hosting auditions for our upcoming One-Act Festival at our theatre in Hendersonville, NC, and we will also accept video auditions.

One-Act Festival roles are open to anyone ages 16 and over who lives throughout Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. All experience levels are welcome to audition. Our actors are compensated through audience donations, so we do not guarantee a stipend or provide housing, meals, or pay for rehearsals. However, we offer a warm, friendly, and creative environment where you can showcase your talents and feel appreciated for your contribution.

We encourage performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to attend our audition.
