CALLBACKS:

Callbacks will be held on Saturday, May 10 from 4pm-7pm.  Please DO NOT attend this initial audition if you are unable to attend the callbacks.  You will be contacted by the Monday after the initial auditions if we would like you to attend the callbacks.

SEEKING:

Children ages 7-12 years of age for the roles of:

  • Jane Banks, age 11, no taller than 56”
  • Michael Banks, age 9, unchanged voice, no taller than 52”

The children will be measured for height and photographed at the initial audition.

Children must be strong, honest actor/singers with good movement skills.  They must have excellent listening skills, great focus and a good ear for dialects.  The children may fly in this production, so they must be physically fit and unafraid of heights.  The Banks children are well-bred, but ill-behaved because they are starved for attention from their parents.  They love Mary Poppins, but also fear her.  Under her guidance, they thrive, learning to be self-reliant, empathetic and loving.

PREPARATION:

Please bring a current headshot and resume.  Please prepare one, 32 bar selection of a song appropriate for the show.  They are welcome to sing from the show, but they must bring their own music.  A score will NOT be provided.  Children must bring sheet music, clearly marked in the appropriate key.  Chord charts and melody lines only will NOT be accepted.
