Tricia Wiles auditioned for Theatre VCU’s Mainstage production of “HairSpray.” While she did receive a call back for the parts of Penny and Amber, she was cast as a female council member in the play. “It was the first vocal audition that I felt (like) I gave it my complete all and there was nothing I would have changed about it,” Wiles said. Wiles also registers for classes this coming week.
