All those auditioning must come prepared to sing part of a song of their own
choosing and will be taught a short dance to perform. Please bring a CD with
backtrack music only (no vocals) or sheet music of your prepared song. You
may also be asked to cold-read for specific roles.
For all audition details and available roles go to our website:
While similar in plot to ³The Wizard of Oz², The Wiz (usually) uses an
all-black cast to transform the show into a more fun, funky modern version.
Dorothy, the little girl from Kansas is blown by a tornado into Munchkinland
in the Land Of Oz. While there she meets the Scarecrow, the Tinman & the
Cowardly Lion on the Yellow Brick Road. She defeats the evil witch and goes
to see the powerful Wizard who turns out to be a phony. However, Glinda is able
to convince Dorothy that she can do anything she wants if she just believes
in herself. Dorothy also realizes the importance of home and her family.
All performer/singers are encouraged to audition (lots of roles available,
male & female, all ages!!) Although black performers may be given
preference for certain roles (especially Dorothy), auditions are open to ALL
performers. We expect to have a very diverse cast!!
