Follow the yellow brick road to DMTC’s ‘Wizard of Oz’ auditions

Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Young Performers Theatre announced auditions for its upcoming production of “The Wizard of Oz.”

Auditions will take place from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, and Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive, with select callbacks on Wednesday, Jan. 16.

Auditions require singing, acting and dancing at the director’s discretion, so auditioners should arrive with appropriate shoes, as well as sheet music of a song they are prepared to sing (do not use a song from the show). A piano accompanist will be provided; no recorded music or a cappella singing, please.

Actors ages 7 through 17 may participate, as well as 18-year-old high school students or seniors who graduate this year. No experience is required, but selection is by audition.

Jan Isaacson will direct and choreograph this musical that centers on Dorothy Gale, who tires of her boring, Kansas existence and dreams of what lies over the rainbow. When a twister hits her family farm and carries her away to another world, she teams up with the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and Toto to seek the mysterious Wizard of Oz.

This is an audience favorite that includes all of the classic songs, and there are a wide range of roles available for boys and girls, teens and children.

The general rehearsal schedule is 4:30 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, beginning on Jan. 21. Performances are on weekends, March 2-24. For those cast in the production, a $75 participation fee plus costuming costs are required, as well as 25 parent volunteer hours. Scholarships are available on a limited basis.
