THE ROLE OF Dorothy Gale has already been Cast
Professor Marvel/The Wizard of Oz – Professor Marvel portrays himself as one who knows many things and has great wisdom in all matters with the help of his crystal ball. Must be a strong actor. Wizard of Oz is a mysterious character that rules over Oz.
Hunk/The Scarecrow – Hunk is the thinker of the bunch who speaks his mind. The Scarecrow is made of straw and walks with constant unrestricted movements. He has no brain but often says more intelligent and insightful things than any other person in the musical.
Zeke/The Cowardly Lion – Zeke is the farmhand Dorothy turns to for encouragement and courage. He is sweet and comforting but easily spooked. The Cowardly Lion wishes to go home throughout the adventures in Oz but his friends never let him. In the end he finds the courage he thought he was lacking.
Hickory/The Tin Man – Hickory is emotionally charged farmhand who desires great things. He is quick witted and lovable. The Tin Man is the most loving and emotional character in the musical. He wants nothing more than to have his heart back. He is strong, protective, and encouraging.
Aunt Em/Glinda the Good Witc (may be played by two separate actors) – Emily Gale is the Aunt of Dorothy who leads a busy and tiring life on her Kansas farm. Glinda the Good Witch of the North watches over Dorothy and her friends. She is caring and nurturing and is a great aid to anyone in need. She must portray dignity and grace.
Miss Gulch/The Wicked Witch of the West – Miss Gulch is uptight neighbor who attempts to take Dorothy’s beloved dog Toto away from her. She is harsh, mean and strict spirit but also has a good delivery of sarcastic banter. The Wicked Witch of the West is the villain of our story. She follows our four friends throughout the land of OZ striking fear into them any way she can. While she is a bully with a fantastically creepy cackle she also has a playful fun side.
Uncle Henry/Emerald City Guard – Dorothy’s pleasant uncle who helps oversee their farm, and is caring and protective of his family. The Guard is the first face our friends meet when arriving to the gates of the Emerald City. He is comic and has a strong presence.
Ensemble – We are looking to cast a child/teen ensemble as well as adult ensemble of between 10 - 15 performers. The ensemble will be VERY busy in roles such as Munchkins, Crows, Winkies, Flying Monkeys, Ozians, Emerald City citizens, Poppies, and more.
Speaking roles & Soloists in Ensemble:
Mayor of Munchkinland
Vice Mayor of Munchkinland
Nikko (Lead Flying Monkey)
