Auditions

Following “Spamalot”, WODS will begin rehearsals for one of musical theatre’s most enduring and endearing shows – “Oklahoma!”, to be staged in April 2019. This well-known musical, originally titled “Away We Go!”, is set in the Oklahoma Territory at the turn of the 20th century, as farmers and cattlemen alike are clamouring for statehood, and is the first collaboration between Rodgers and Hammerstein – powerhouse partnership that went on to write “Carousel”, “South Pacific” and “The Sound of Music”. The story centres around headstrong farm girl Laurey Williams, who lives on a ranch with her Aunt Eller, and she is being pursued by two romantic rivals: cowboy Curly McLain and hired hand Jud Fry. Laurey’s friend, Ado Annie Carnes, has her own set of suitors – Persian peddler Ali Hakim, whose silver-tongued sales pitches leave her swooning, and cowboy Will Parker, her sweet-natured but dim-witted fiancé. This new production of a classic show seeks to provide a whip-cracking evening of entertainment, whilst showing audiences all the light and shade of this celebrated story.

If you would like to be involved with this production in any way, please click here for more information on how to join us.
We rehearse primarily on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, usually between 7.30pm and 10pm at St. Mary’s Hall, Northfield Street, Worcester, WR1 1NS: the Society’s own home.

The first get-together and audition workshop for “Oklahoma!” will be from 7.30pm on Tuesday 6th November 2018, with further workshops on 7th, 13th and 14th November and auditions on Sunday 18th November from 1pm onwards. We look forward to meeting you, and you can be sure of a warm welcome, and even a cup of tea or coffee! If you’re not interested in performing on stage but would like to join the Society in another capacity such as backstage, wardrobe, publicity or anything else that would contribute towards our productions then we’d also be very keen to hear from you.
