Thank you to everyone who auditioned! Everyone who auditioned has been cast. If you auditioned and do not see your name on a cast list please contact us, because that was a clerical error on our end. We are so excited for this wonderful summer season of shows!
What do I do now?
Step One: Check the Cast Lists
- Look for your name below. We were able to cast everyone who auditioned in at least one show. If you auditioned and your name is not on one of these lists, please contact Cori immediately. This means that we made a mistake and didn’t copy things correctly.
- If you auditioned for more than one show, please be sure to check all of the cast lists. Your name may appear more than once!
Step Two: Contact the Director
- Please email the director for your show to let them know that you will be accepting the role.
- If you decide not to participate in a show that you were cast in, please let the director know as soon as possible.
Step Three: Register for your Show
Once you have been cast in a production, we will post the course code for that show on the Limelight website, and you will need to register with the park district. You can do this:
- Online! Online registration available for all shows.
- Over the phone by calling 630-554-1010. You can only register over the phone if you have an Annual Waiver on file.
- In person by going into one of the park district buildings to fill out the registration form and pay the registration fee. Visit www.oswegolandparkdistrict.org for building addresses and operating hours.
Please check all cast lists below! If you have any questions, please contact Cori at firstname.lastname@example.org.

WLTC Radio Theatre Series
The WLTC Radio Division presents radio dramas based on classic films, literature, and some original works and adaptations. Radio shows are typically performed at 7:00pm one Saturday a month January through April and September through November.
Actors invited to perform in one of these radio dramas are typically in HIGH SCHOOL and older. Roles are cast based on need. For example, if the show requires a part to be played by a young actor, then a young actor will be contacted. All actors must meet certain criteria in order to facilitate the quick rehearsal process that this type of show needs. Those criteria are:
- A demonstrated ability to take initiative and practice lines/character work outside of the rehearsal process.
- A proven track record of rehearsing quickly, taking direction, and making adjustments in character in a way that contributes to the positive work environment of a production.
- A consistent commitment to professionalism in the rehearsal process, as well as the ability to use that professionalism to improve the quality of the performance.
- Actors who meet these criteria should indicate interest in performing in the radio series by filling out the electronic form link above.
Each play is a mix between veteran actors and those new to this type of production. In an effort to be inclusive, actors who indicate interest will be cast according to their availability, and not being cast in one production means that actors will likely be cast in one of the following ones.
