INTO THE WOODS - click + for more information

Stephen Sondheim’s beloved musical Into the Woods opened on Broadway in 1987 and was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and won for Best Score: Stephen Sondheim, Best Actress: Joanna Gleason,  and Best Book: James Lapine.  The plot is based on an amalgamation of fairy tales made bitingly rich by the incomparable wit of Mr. Sondheim’s brilliant music and lyrics.

If you are not familiar with the show, please do your research.  For your audition, prepare one minute of a Sondheim song that demonstrates your ability to create character, your vocal range and your intelligence in approaching Sondheim’s work.  Feel free to sing from the show if you would like.  Be bold in your choices and go after what you want.  Please use a piano track for your accompaniment and steer away from online accompaniments that are overly orchestrated.  If you choose to accompany yourself, make sure that your face is clearly visible in your camera frame.

Please submit your materials via email to Emmy Steele at emily.steele@wagner.edu (please use your wagner.edu address) by July 15.

Your materials will include:

  1.  a video submission
  2.  a resume and
  3. a headshot.

Callbacks will be held in person during the first week of classes but the callback list will be posted by the end of July and all candidates will receive callback materials during the first week of August.
