Auditions to be held for ‘The Wizard of Oz’

Provided to the Tribune

Tahoe Arts Project will host auditions for Missoula Children’s Theatre’s production of “The Wizard of Oz” on Monday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to noon on the lawn at Valhalla.

Among the roles to be cast are Dorothy, Toto, the Lion, the Tin Man, the professor/wizard, the Green Guard, Glinda, the Wicked Witch, Mayor Munchkin, Farmer Munchkin, the Munchkins, the Winkies, the Magicians and the Fierce and Ferocious Flowers.

Children entering first grade through 12th grade may audition. No advance preparation is necessary. Those who plan to attend should plan to stay for the full two hours. Some cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions. Auditions are free and, if cast, there will be a charge of $50 per child to participate in the weeklong theater experience. A limited number of scholarships is available.

There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast for a role in the production. Parents are asked to discuss this with their child ahead of time. Children must have a clear schedule for the week if they audition. Rehearsals will take place from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., depending on their role, on the lawn at Valhalla.

The performance will take place Friday, July 20 at 5 p.m. at the Lake of the Sky Amphitheater at the U.S. Forest Service Taylor Creek Visitor’s Center.

Assistant directors will also be cast to assist in rehearsals throughout the week and to take on backstage responsibilities.
