Auditions in Wisconsin for Holiday Shows in Watertown (Milwaukee Area)

By | September 27, 2023

The Watertown Players Community Theater is pleased to announce joint auditions for two of our upcoming, unique performances.

Radio Station: F.E.A.R. will be performed at the Watertown Players Theater on October 28, 29, & 30. Also, performing at the Octagon House Museum on November 25 & 26 will be our annual holiday play, an adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Anderson story of The Snow Queen.

Auditions for both shows will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2023, at the Watertown Players Theater, 210 S. Water St (in The Market), from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

No prior experience is required for either production. Both shows are also ideal for people that would like to perform, but may not have a lot of spare time for rehearsing. Auditioners will be asked to read from the scripts.

Those wishing to take part in the musical numbers for F.E.A.R. will be asked to prepare a song of their own, and bring either their own recorded music or we will have an accompanist available to play the piano.

Please sign up for your audition spot using this link: During your audition, you will have the option to read for both shows.



Radio Station: F.E.A.R. is a seasonal-themed, old-time radio show production, performed on-stage in the style of the popular radio shows from the 1930’s and 1940’s. We will be performing several spooky and scary stories like ‘Cat Wife’ and ‘Sorry, Wrong Number’, and mixed in will be some of our famously infamous commercials.

There will also be humorous musical numbers, with songs of the spooky season written by Tom Lehrer. Performers will be reading from scripts (just like the original radio actors) so no line memorization is necessary!

There are roles for men and women, and actors will be playing multiple parts throughout the performance.

This show is directed by Jim Steffl, and any questions regarding auditions or the show itself can be sent to him via email at

The Snow Queen, produced in conjunction with the Watertown Historical Society, tells the story of Gerda and Kay, playmates. Kay makes a boast about how he is not afraid of the Snow Queen, who promptly appears on his doorstep and spirits him away. Gerda goes off in pursuit of him and along the way runs into all sorts of obstacles and meets eccentric characters like a pair of bumbling robbers and the Lapp and Finn Women. This is a unique theatrical experience – theater in the “octagonal”. The audience is ushered into this historic eight-sided landmark and taken through the first four rooms on the main floor by the actors. A different scene is presented in each room.

There are roles for 10 adults and 6 children. If you have questions, please contact the director, Annette Weirick, at 920-988-9866 or at
