The Ellen Theatre presents auditions for...


The Ellen Theatre is thrilled to announce the return of our summer musical! We will be presenting Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music and are seeking actors to be a part of this magical show. The production will be directed by Mary Jo Ludin and feature a twenty-three piece live orchestra under the direction of Stefan Stern. This much-loved classic will open August 5th and run through August 21st.

Available roles:

All roles in the show are available including Maria, Captain Von Trapp, The Von Trapp Children, The Mother Abbess, Nuns, Max, Elsa, Rolf, and more. 


The Von Trapp Children range in age from about 5 to 16, and young actors must be comfortable working with adult actors in a professional environment.


In this show, the race of the characters is not pivotal to the plot. We encourage people of all ethnicities to audition for this production.
