Our Next Production
Waterville Playshop is excited to announce auditions for our next show:
THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL!
Auditions will be held Sunday, February 6, from 1-6PM and (only if needed) on Monday, February 7 from 6-7PM. Additionally, callbacks would occur on February 7 from 7-10PM. All auditions will occur at the Waterville Playshop building, 808 Michigan Avenue, Waterville, OH. Those auditioning are asked to sign up for audition timeslots via this Google Form: https://forms.gle/MSFcKViS4YsSMUpr9. The directing staff will confirm the time with you prior to February 6. If you cannot access the sign-up form, or if you have other scheduling questions, please contact director Matt Zwyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (419) 276-0032. Video submissions are permitted as long as the directors have been contacted in advance. And walk-in auditions will not be turned away; these folks may just have to wait a few additional minutes to be seen.
Performance dates are April 22, 23, and 24, 2022 at the Maumee Indoor Theater. Rehearsals will begin on Wednesday, February 16. Rehearsals will be held on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings. All rehearsals will be in Waterville, OH.
Those auditioning should prepare up to 2 minutes of a Broadway-style song that best showcases range. As this is a pop-style musical comedy involving certain character voices, a comedic song from this or similar-style show potentially using a specific character voice would be preferable. An accompanist will be provided. There will also be a short dance audition. This show does feature some tap as well so if you have tap shoes, bring them to audition. Depending on the character(s) for which you are auditioning, you may be given a short scene to read in addition to the other portions of the audition. Please note that casting for this show is completely genderless in nature, but as of this time, no person under the age of 13 will be considered for roles.
THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL brings to life the famous Nickelodeon cartoon in his most dramatic adventure yet—fun for audiences of all ages. For more information, visit www.concordtheatricals.com for a brief synopsis of the show.
Tammy Fitch will be Producer, Matt Zwyer will direct, Jenny Jackson will music direct, and Sarah Matlow will choreograph.
We do ask that those auditioning wear a mask to auditions. You will be allowed to take your mask off during your singing portion of the audition. Because of the current high number of Covid-19 Cases, we are highly encouraging all those who audition to be vaccinated. See below to gain early access to audition forms and information.
THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Waterville Playshop has been delighting audiences for a long time. How long you ask? Well, let’s just say that when our first production premiered, the President was Harry S. Truman, the TV show I Love Lucy had just come out, and the hot new toy was Mr. Potato Head!
The long and rich history of Waterville Playshop has refined this community organization into a group that strives to put on professional quality shows using the abundant talent that Northwest Ohio has to offer. Let’s take a look at the shows of the past that have helped us to perfect our future…
