Wizard of Oz Audition Schedule and Process
Nov. 26- Dec. 3 Assumption BVM Church Basement
Those auditioning for lead roles Should plan on attending multiple days. After vocal auditions on Monday, only those who are being considered for the lead roles will be asked to read for those roles. We will notify those students via email on Monday evening. Some students may be asked to come back and read for other minor characters later in the week. For your planning, it is a good idea to keep that entire week open.
This year, students may choose only 3 characters for which to audition. This will prevent auditions from becoming too long and confusing. Students, Make sure you choose the characters that you really want the most. Anyone who attends the vocal audition, will be considered for solos.
