The producers at WSRSTheatre will, at times, pre-cast roles in any of the shows during their seasons. Due to jobs, family, and time constraints, the pre-casting of specific roles allows many actors in the Wichita theatre community adequate preparation time to clear their schedules. We will always let auditioners know if roles in the show have been pre-cast. Otherwise, audition announcements will say “All roles are available.”
