‘Wizard of Oz’ auditions on tap at BPA

Bainbridge Performing Arts will hold auditions for the upcoming production of “The Wizard of Oz” Monday, Sept. 10 and Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Dorothy thinks she is lost forever when a terrifying tornado crashes through Kansas and whisks her and her dog, Toto, far away to the magical land of Oz. To get home Dorothy must follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City and find the wonderfully mysterious Wizard of Oz. Together with her companions — the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion, whom she meets on the way — Dorothy embarks on a strange and enchanting adventure.

Run dates are Dec. 7- 9, Dec. 14-16 and Dec. 20-22, with a pay-what-you-can preview on Dec. 6.

Rehearsals extend Oct. 9 through Dec. 5, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:40 to 9:40 p.m., plus Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The show includes roles for 30 to 45 men, women and youths, age 9 and older. A detailed list of characters and additional information is available online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org.

Those auditioning are requested to prepare a 1- to a 1 1/2-minute monologue and 32 bars of a Golden Age Broadway song. An accompanist will be provided but you must bring sheet music (clearly marked and in a three-ring binder). All roles are open to audition.
