Synopsis: Based on Frank Wedekind’s groundbreaking and controversial play (once banned in Germany), Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s brilliant rock score and searingly emotional book take the story of sexual awakening, youth revolt, and self-discovery into a new century. It’s 1891, and grown-ups hold all the cards. Headstrong Melchior and naive Wendla stumble into each others’ arms, passionate and curious, while anxious Moritz struggles to live up to the stringent expectations of society. With only each other for guidance, this group of young people travel the fraught and rocky path of adolescence, discovering their bodies, their minds, and themselves along the way.

Staging: This will be a staged reading of the show, (concert style) with stage directions read aloud.

Ages 14-18 (must be in 9th grade to audition)

Roles available


A headstrong, smart, and charismatic schoolboy. He knows much more than the others because of what he reads in books and is able to see the corruption in society. His “radical” points of view about most things are correct but misunderstood. He falls in love with Wendla. Male Presenting, Ages 16 to 20, Bari-Tenor


A sweet, but naive young girl who is trapped in her family’s unwillingness to teach her about the adult world, but with every passing day, she grows bolder. Both vulnerable, and a willing participant in her evolution.


Melchior’s intense and nervous best friend. He has an overwhelming confusion relating to  his feelings, which seems comedic at first, but quickly develops into a serious issue for him. The system has failed him. Highly sensitive and aware of his inability to fit into the system. Feels like a failure. Male Presenting,


A schoolgirl who faces constant abuse from her father, and tries to keep it all to herself. She harbors a secret crush towards Moritz, and is made fun of for it. Female Presenting,


A misguided young girl who runs away from an abusive home to live in an artists’ colony. Kind and resilient while also broken and stuck in a cycle of abuse. There is a strong emotional connection between Ilse and Moritz.


A cunning and attractive schoolboy, who manipulates the other students, especially Ernst. Like Melchior, he also appears to be very intelligent, but uses his knowledge in favor of the system.


A schoolmate of Melchior’s. Naive and sweet, which allows him to fall in love with Hanschen.


Wendla’s best friend. A schoolgirl who tries to stay innocent and pure. Female Presenting,


Martha’s best friend. Optimistic and a bit naive, she has a difficult time understanding Martha’s trials.
