BRIDGTON — Auditions for Lake Region Community Theatre’s summer musical will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 5 and 6, at Stevens Brook Elementary School, 14 Frances Bell Drive.

Callbacks to read for major roles will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 7.

This year’s musical is Roald Dahl’s “Willy Wonka.” This show has a large number of feature roles for both older and younger actors. The group is seeking actors ages 10 and up.

Those auditioning should come prepared to sing one of the following songs from the show: “Cheer Up, Charlie,” “I Want It Now!” or “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket.” An accompanist will be provided.

Appropriate clothing that will not limit movement should be worn for dance auditions. Appropriate shoes should be warn — no sandals, flip-flops or Crocs.

Performances will occur over two weekends, Aug. 12-14 and 19 and 20, at Lake Region High School’s auditorium in Naples.

Rehearsals are generally two to three evenings per week and on Saturdays for larger groups. The focus of rehearsals at the beginning will be music and blocking.

Rehearsals are scheduled by scenes and actors will only be expected to attend those rehearsals for scenes in which they will appear. All actors should alert the producers of any scheduling conflicts related to rehearsals.
