Upcoming AuditionsInformation for our upcoming auditions
Here at the Studio, we believe auditions don’t have to be scary. That’s why we work hard to make them fun. No cattle-call, get ’em in and get it done over here. We’re going to take time to calm nerves, chat a little and hopefully create an environment that doesn’t freak anyone out. Hey, we’ve been there. We know how intimidating it can be to sing your guts out to a table of “judges”… so we’re going to do everything we can think of to make sure every child has an awesome audition experience.

Grimm Character Descriptions
The Girl/ Red
An introverted, awkward bookworm who is thrust into an adventure she usually only reads about. Great female lead vehicle for someone who is comedic and musical.
The Boy/The Frog Prince
A romantic prince-turned-frog who has a good, commonsensical head on his green shoulders. Look to cast someone who is good-looking, endearing, and could possibly play the ukulele.
A conniving, short, squirrely, comically wicked little man who is constantly scheming his way into making any situation better for himself. He’s not brooding or evil, more kinetic and pompous. This role is pretty demanding, both acting-wise and singing-wise.
The Big Bad Wolf
A retired, cool, smooth-talkin’ wolf who is roped into one last ‘mission’ before he settles down. Think smooth, a crooner, someone who can command a room. He’s in love with someone he sings to, while hidden, who lives at the top of a tall tower; Rapunzel.
The Fairy Godmother
Cinderella’s fairy godmother, but she’s lost her powers. She’s optimistic, Glinda-like, but is depressed because her wand doesn’t work anymore.
Wendell is the 8th dwarf – where there are only supposed to be seven. He’s a foot and a half taller than the rest and really wants to prove to himself and everyone else that he’s has something to offer.
Cinderella’s wicked step-mother, cousin to The Queen and Madame Carabosse. Overbearing, poshly dressed, and condescending.
The unspoken (and self-appointed) leader of the witches, she’s Snow White’s evil queen. She is regal but horribly wicked. constantly looking for ways to ruin not only Snow White’s story, but everyone else’s as well.
Carabosse is Briar Rose’s evil witch, the one who cast a spell to put her family and entire kingdom to sleep. She’s cousins with The Queen and Lady Amara, and she’s wretched, crouched, and physically hunched more than the other two witches.
Snow White’s prince, and he’s incredibly charming but shockingly naïve. Everything is said with bravado; every emotion is felt to the utmost. A comedic actor here who can ride a bike.
A stunningly handsome, charismatic prince, fit for a prince and hosting a ball. However, under the Witches’ spell, because the world’s worst dancer. The perfect role for someone who isn’t afraid of looking foolish.
The Cowardly Prince
Briar Rose’s prince, brave enough to conquer darkness, thorns, and whatever perils lay within her castle. However, under the Witches’ spell, he becomes afraid of literally everything. Bunnies included.
The Dwarves (Stuffy, Grouchy, Snarky, Barky, Lumpy, Fluffernutter, and Mime)
These are the seven ‘original’ dwarves to Snow White, each acting the part that their name describes. Fluffernutter constantly eats, Mime can’t actually talk (just act things out), and so on. Perfect for younger, shorter, fun-loving performers.
Snow White is the typical princess from the story we all know – but under the Witches’ spell, she becomes irritable, cantankerous, and hates the dwarves. She longs to find another poison apple to put her back in the glass box.
Cinderella is exactly how you would picture her in the story – beautiful but bullied, longing for princes and balls and gowns. However, her Fairy Godmother has no magic – and it’s up to Cinderella (with a bit of help) to find a way to win her Prince’s heart at the ball.
Stuck atop a tall tower, Rapunzel is the epitome of beauty with an angelic voice. However, because of being rewritten by Rumpelstiltskin, she becomes literally tone-deaf, singing everything completely off key. A great role for a fantastic singer who’s not afraid of sounding like a rake on a chalkboard.
Sleeping Beauty by another name, Briar Rose is hopelessly and utterly romantic. She finds love everywhere, and longs for everyone else to find it as well.
Jacob Grimm (younger)
One of the Grimm brothers, he is your typical 10-year old boy, adventurous, fearless, and creative. Cast an actor here.
Wilhelm Grimm (younger)
One of the Grimm brothers, he is the younger of the two. He’s mischievous, turning sticks into swords and always looking to put dragons in his stories.
Jacob Grimm (older)
An old man who runs the bookshop with his younger brother – but there is always a bit of a twinkle in his eye. This isn’t a throwaway part. Jacob is in quite a few scenes, and also opens the show.
Wilhelm Grimm (older)
An old man who runs the bookshop with his older brother – but there is always a bit of a twinkle in his eye. This isn’t a throwaway part. Wilhelm is in quite a few scenes, and also opens the show.
