Audition Information

Please note: The age ranges listed are the characters’ ages, not necessarily the ages of the actors.


Maria Rainer (musical theatre mix/soprano, some dance, 20-35 A postulant at Nonnberg Abbey – young, free spirited, warm, gentle and kind with much determination.
Captain Georg von Trapp (baritone, moves well, 35-45) A retired Austrian naval captain. Polished, yet very military in the way he runs his life to repress his sadness over the death of his wife; underneath, he is warm, understanding, and determined.
Max Detweiller (tenor/baritone, moves well, 30+) Charming and vital; a man of sophistication who enjoys the good life; true and loyal friend to the von Trapp family.
Elsa Schrader (mezzo soprano, moves well, 35-45 A baroness of taste and elegance, sophisticated, dignified and mature.
Mother Abbess (legit soprano, wide vocal range, 40+, very strong actress) Motherly, understanding, strong and authoritative, but kind.


Sister Berthe (alto, moves well) Mistress of Novices, prudish, straight laced with a quick tongue, she is less tolerant than other nuns.
Sister Margaretta (mezzo, moves well) Mistress of Postulants, very kind, understanding and concerned.
Sister Sophia (soprano, moves well) Neither demanding nor critical, sticks with the rules.
Franz (non-singing, 30+ The von Trapp butler, rather formal but not without spirit, he is very German and loyal to the Fascist cause.
Frau Schmidt (non-singing, 30+) The housekeeper, stoic, very little personality; she does her job efficiently but without affection. Strong and somewhat dominating.
Herr Zeller (non-singing, 40+) Stern and unsmiling, a typical Nazi official whose primary concern is to see that everyone toes the line.
Rolf Gruber (low tenor, dance, 17) Suitor to Liesl, telegram delivery boy, later Nazi soldier. A very pleasant young man, somewhat aggressive but in a gentle way.


All children, apart from their character description must be able to be conservative with their emotions and “serious.”
Liesl von Trapp (mezzo, some dance 16) The oldest child, blossoming into a young lady with an interest in boys. She has a maternal edge to her and cares very deeply for her younger siblings.
Friedrich von Trapp (age 14) Tough exterior, very much trying to be “the man” of the family.
Louisa von Trapp (age 13) Rebellious attitude.
Kurt von Trapp (age 10, falsetto) Gentle and mischievous.
Brigitta von Trapp (age 9) Smart, reads a lot.
Marta von Trapp (age 7) Very sweet and gentle.
