Auditions for Oklahoma!

Wheatland Theatre Co. is casting all roles for our upcoming production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!

Oklahoma! is the third production of WTC’s Guest Artist Program, which brings professional theatre artists from around the country to Lincoln County to work alongside and mentor local volunteers. Celebrating the 75th anniversary of Oklahoma!, our production will take a fresh look at this American classic.

The production is directed by Lee Mikeska Gardner, award-winning artistic director of The Nora Theatre Company, a midsized Equity company in the Boston area, bringing decades of experience as an actor and director in Washington, DC and Boston.

In addition to local performers cast from these auditions, the company will feature two professional actors, to be cast from New York City, in roles to be determined following the local auditions. The production team is made up of a diverse mix of professionals and volunteers from New York, Spokane, and Davenport.

Personnel at both auditions will include choreographer Suzanne Ostersmith and music supervisor Karen Brewster, as well as director Lee Mikeska Gardner and producer Drew Kowalkowski via video link.

Mileage reimbursement is available for all company members traveling from other areas of Lincoln County and from the Spokane area.

  • Full rehearsals (6 days per week) begin June 10. Not everyone will be called to every rehearsal.
