Rehearsals begin in August with performances beginning September 25 and running through October 24 on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.

Please submit all headshots and resumes to hackensacktheatre@gmail.com for an appointment. All actors should prepare a portion of a song (no longer than a minute long) and a short monologue.

Hackensack Theatre Company is holding auditions by appointment for young adult and adult actors for Willy Wonka. 1st Rehearsl: July 6, 2009. Production in September in Hackensack. Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this stage adaptation of “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory,” which features the songs from the classic family film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”

Willy Wonka: Wonka is an enigmatic character; at once mysterious and mischievous but also charismatic. A strong singing and speaking voice is required. This character may double as the Candy Man. Ideally, the character should look like he is in his late 30s-early 40s, but we are open to seeing other actors as well.

The Candy Man: The Candy Man is a charismatic candy shop owner. Must be able to sing and act. This character may double as Willy Wonka.

Grandpa Joe: Grandpa Joe is the grandfather we all wish we had when were Charlie’s age. He is caring, patient, and sweet, always reminding Charlie to be cheerful. He should be kind and funny. This role sings a bit. Ideally, the actor should appear over 50 years old.

Mr. Bucket and Mrs. Bucket: These are featured roles for actors with nice voices and are natural nurturers. Both sing solos.

Phineous Trout: Phineous is the report who announces the winners of the Golden Ticket contest throughout the show. He has a dry and sarcastic sense of humor. The role requires some singing. This character can also be played by a female actor.

Mrs. Gloop: Augustus’ mother who has overindulged her son with candy. She accompanies Augustus on the tour of the factory and sings a song with him. The role requires a character actress that can master a German accent. Being overweight is a plus for this role.

Ms. Teavee: She is a modern-take on television moms of the distant past. Think June Cleaver, Marion Cunningham, and Carol Brady all in one. She’s perfectly put together and a bit vacant. She sings a song with her son, Mike, but does not need a polished voice.

Grandparents: Charlie’s three grandparents are mainly non-singing character roles. They should have good comic timing and be excellent character actors. They should be able to play over 50 years old.

Mr. Salt: Mr. Salt’s solution to most problems is to buy his way out. He is upper class and is usually portrayed with a high British accent. He sings very little.

Mrs. Beauregard: She is a teacher of geography and has invested a great deal of hard-earned money on therapy for her orally fixated daughter, with less than stellar results. This role is virtually non-singing. Actress should be able to perform with a Southern American accent as the character is from Georgia.

Oompa-Loompas: A chorus of male and female workers in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. They will have a great deal of singing and dancing as a group. They need not be short.
