The Wizard of Oz Cast List

Read the entire post, please:

Here is the cast list for ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Note: this is the TOUGHEST show I have ever cast. There was a lot of talent showcased, and every student is deserving, but we have to choose a cast that is both manageable and provides as many opportunities as possible. We struggled mightily and debated endlessly. We are excited for the results. We encourage anyone who was not cast this time around to check with us in the coming days on how they can be involved with this production and other opportunities with the Page Middle Players. Please email me at bradley.brown@wcs.edu to accept your role (rather than posting below). Be mindful and respectful of your peers the next few days.

Our first rehearsal will be after school on Tuesday, February 7 from 2:40 – 5:00. We will pass out scripts, go over rules, pass out contracts, give out the specific schedule for the production, etc. There will be a parent meeting after our Thursday, February 9 rehearsal (the meeting will start around 4:45).

Note: If the descriptions says ‘Various’, there is a strong possibility that these performers may be extra Ozians, farmhands, puppeteers, Winkie guards (to the Witch), etc., as needed.
