MILLBURN, NJ - The last time Paper Mill Playhouse held open-call auditions for The Sound of Music, a young man named Nick Jonas ended up on the stage. Could it happen again?

Any child who auditions must bring sheet music in the appropriate key and style and be prepared to sing 16 bars only.  An accompanist will be provided and recorded music is not permitted. Children should wear appropriate footwear as they may be asked to dance.  Callbacks will be held on the same day.  Depending on the number of children auditioning, there is no guarantee everyone will be seen.

“The last time Paper Mill Playhouse held an open-call audition for children in The Sound of Music, we discovered a talented young man by the name of Nick Jonas,” commented Mark S. Hoebee, Paper Mill Playhouse’s Producing Artistic Director.  “Nick went on to become a major star both in the recording industry and on Broadway.  Could the next Nick Jonas be at these auditions?  I sure hope so!”
