Auditions for Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins is our big June show at the Amphitheater. The show performs June 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, 11. Auditions are open for adults, youth, and also for children ages 7 and above who have a parent in the show. The production will be directed and choreographed by Susan DeMill, music directed by Tricia Swanson.

Audition Times

Auditions will be held on Thursday 8 March from 6:45-9 pm and on Saturday 10 March from 9 -11 am. Those invited to callbacks will come back on Tuesday 13 March at 7 pm. All of the above will be held at American Preparatory Academy Draper Campus III (431 West 11915 South in Draper).

Audition Prep

You must enroll with our online system BEFORE you show up for auditions. Read and follow these instructions that explain how to enroll for online auditions. Again, do this BEFORE you show up for auditions.

For your audition prepare to perform 32 measures of a Broadway song in the style of the show. An accompanist will be provided. No recorded tracks.

For additional suggestions on having a successful audition, please review these audition tips.


The callback list will be posted to the DAC website by 10 pm11:59 pm Saturday 10 March. The cast list will the posted by 10 pm Sunday 17 March.


Normal rehearsals begin Monday 9 April at the Draper Amphitheater and will typically run Monday through Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. Evening tech rehearsals will start May 21. A general rehearsal calendar is already on the website, details will be updated as rehearsals progress.

Pre-Season Rehearsals

We will hold two special rehearsals from 7-10 pm on Monday 19 March and Thursday 22 March to get an early start on the big numbers (Supercal and Step In Time). Location will be announced.


When you enroll, you must fill out the conflict calendar in its entirety. Conflicts disclosed after auditions will be considered unexcused and may result in losing your part. Rehearsal details will be updated on the website.

Plans for the 2018 Season

Draper Arts Council is busy putting together an exciting lineup of productions for our 2018 season! If you have any suggestions for shows you’d like to see, send us an email from the Contact page. (And if you’d like to do more than just suggest, come to one of our board meetings, to see how you can get more involved. We are always looking for more people, especially people with ideas.)

Cast shots of Seussical the Musical

At this point we are only exploring possibilities, but we plan to present two major Broadway shows planned for the Draper Amphitheater’s summer 2018 season.

It is our plan to change the Big Band Tribute a bit this year. We will definitely be doing a “tribute” show, but exactly how that develops will depend on selection of a director.

Most likely Kevin McClellan will be back with his Broadway Kidz, since this will be 20 years in a row, and who would ever stop at 19? More details on that as we progress.

Last year we debuted the Amphitheater Stage as an exciting new venue for small shows, with the fantastically successful (if occasionally chilly) Daddy Long Legs. Producer Gordon Jones is considering one of A.A. Milne’s smaller plays (yes, he wrote plays, as well as children’s books — in fact the children’s books were an aberration in a long and successful career as playwright, novelist, essayist, and social critic). Gordon is thinking perhaps of The Ivory Door, an exploration of the role outward appearances play in shaping identities, or The Perfect Alibi, one of two murder mysteries Milne wrote.

We hope to have news soon about a partnership with a local school which will give us much more flexibility to produce smaller plays, both musicals (think She Loves Me, or The Fantasticks) and “straight” plays (think Shakespeare or Holes).

In short, there is a lot going on, and we would love YOU to be part of it. Leave us some feedback, or come and join us. Our next meeting will be Monday 8 January 2018 at 8 pm in the Board Room at City Hall.
