Wizard of Oz Auditions Jan. 20-21

The Olney Central College Theatre will hold auditions for “Wizard of Oz,” on Jan. 20-21 in the Dr. John D. Stull Performing Arts Center.

Roles are available for third-graders through adults. Dialogue cuts are available at for those who want to audition. Adult and high school actors should also be prepared to sing 16 bars from a Broadway song with sheet music for the accompanist. A video with music for Grades 3-8 is available on the theatre website. Students will only need to sing the first 48 seconds of the track.

To be a munchkin, students must be 4’10 or shorter. Students in grade school and junior high, who are taller than 4’10, may audition for a role in the ensemble.

Auditions for Grades 3-8 will be from 1 to 3 p.m. on Jan. 20 and 5 to 7 p.m. on Jan. 21. Auditions for high school students and adults will be from 3 to 5 p.m. on Jan. 20 and 7 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 21.

Rehearsals will begin on Jan. 28. The rehearsal schedule for Grades 3-8 will work around the Richland County Middle School production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” and will be limited compared to the adult schedule.

“Wizard of Oz” performances will be March 21-24 and March 28-31.
