The Barn Youth Center is SO excited to announce AUDITIONS for our fall production, The Wizard of Oz, Young Performers Edition! Join our NEW Director and Stage Manager (see info below), and our amazingly talented production team, as we put together this classic tale about a Kansas farm girl who finds her self in a magical land after a tornado hits her family home. As she navigates this foriegn land that lies somewhere over the rainbow, she begins to discover that even though sometimes we yearn for somewhere bigger and better,
there truly is “No place like home”.
This show features many wonderful roles for singing actors, non-singing actors and featured dancers. Interested performers ages 7 to 18 are welcome to audition. Auditions will be done in a 20 minute time blocks (which will be assigned to registered students based on age and/or availability. Once your group is assigned, there will be an email sent to you with your scheduled audition time) where individual evaluations will be made and then a quick group activity will wrap up the session. Actors will be given a short piece from the show to recite. Singers will be tested for range and are asked to prepare a Wizard of Oz song that best showcases their voice. You can find the 30 second tracks of these songs on the Tams/Witmark website CLICK HERE on the right side of the webpage. Dancers will be given a short routine to learn and perform.
Callbacks may be required for certain roles, and will be scheduled by the director as necessary. All Connecticut students are welcome and everyone who auditions will be included in the show.
