'The Sound of Music' Provisional Cast.

Congratulations and well done to everyone who auditioned today for TSoM.
You should all be very proud as the standard was very high.
The Casting Committee spent three and a quarter hours discussing your auditions and there was tough decisions to make.

The following is the Provisional Cast for 30 days. This means that if the Production Team, in consultation with the Management Committee, are not happy or feels that they may not have made the right choice, they may change the Casting. The Members of the Cast may also decide that they no longer want the part they have been given.
Parents of the successful Children (Under 16s) need to be aware that their Child maybe required to stay after 9pm on some Rehearsals due to the large Principle role their Child has. We will try and give Parents as much notice as possible.
