Curtain Call is thrilled to announce auditions for its big spring musical, The Wizard of Oz. In honor of the 75th anniversary of this film, this will be a full-scale production of the MGM classic featuring all the songs, dialogue and characters we've come to know and love since 1939...plus some extra fun!
All roles are open to non-union actors in this adult production. NOTE: Dorothy will be cast age-appropriately. Munchkins will be cast from younger performers age 6 - 12. Auditions for adults (and Dorothys) will be held at 7pm Monday and Tuesday, January 20 and 21 in The Kweskin Theatre. Auditions for The Munchkins will be held Saturday morning, January 18 from 10am to noon, also in The Kweskin Theatre.
Those auditioning should prepare a brief song in the style of the show, be prepared to read from the script and to learn a brief dance combination. Auditionees should bring sheet music in the correct key and have proper footwear to dance in. IE: No flip flops or sandals. The production will be directed by Kari Sweeney with music direction by Dan Gibson and choreography by Julia Maggiola. Performances will be held over five weekends beginning April 4, 2014.
