Event Description:
The Bandon Playhouse, in conjunction with the 75th Anniversary of the original stage version, is holding auditions for a full-scale musical revival of "The Wizard of Oz." Audition dates are April 29th and 30th from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Sprague Community Theater in Bandon.

Jeff Norris, Director, and Paul Hay, Producer, are back together to partner on this family friendly classic musical. Their last musical collaboration was in 2010 with the successful Bandon Playhouse production of “The Sound of Music” at the Sprague Community Theater.

"The Wizard of Oz" is a heartwarming tale of magic and fantasy, good and evil, and family and friendship. Based on L. Frank Baum’s novel, and the 1939 film, this musical adaption of "The Wizard of Oz" premiered at the Municipal Theatre of St. Louis in 1942 with music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E. Y. Harburg. The score is full of tunes from the timeless film such as “We’re Off To See the Wizard,” "If I Only Had A Brain,” “The Merry Old Land of Oz,” and – of course – “Over The Rainbow.”

The show offers plenty of opportunities for cast members of all ages and is a great experience for new actors, experienced actors and stage crew, according to Director Jeff Norris.

At least 8 principal actors are needed, including three women and five men. Lots of ensemble actors are needed. Anyone who would like to be a part of the production not cast as a main character can be chosen for parts including munchkins, crows/trees, Ozians, beauticians, manicurists, dancing jitterbugs, snowman, winkies, and flying monkeys.

Actors are invited to pre-register for auditions at wizardinbandon.net. For more information, contact Paul Hay at 541-329-0644.
