Open auditions for 'Wizard of Oz'

Ashley Bethard • May 12, 2015 at 6:28 PM

The Sandusky State Theatre is off to see the great Wizard of Oz — and you’re invited to come audition.

The production, which will run from August 18-20 at the State Theatre, is slated to be a community event of epic proportions (a cast of 100-plus). All are invited to audition, regardless of experience.

“We want to get everyone involved,” said Thomas Kazmierczak III, Executive Director of the State Theatre. “The theme is ‘there’s no place like home,’ and in reality, there’s no place in the world like Sandusky.”

Tryouts will be held June 14-15, and Kazmierczak is extending an invitation to community members from all walks of life. “We want it to be fun,” he said. “It’s going to be a blast.”

If you’re nervous about trying out, don’t be. Audition requirements are quite simple.

“Sing a song a capella that shows your talent,” Kazmierczak said. “It can be anything from a Broadway song to ‘Happy Birthday’ to ‘God Bless America.’ Anything they can sing comfortably that makes people go ‘Wow!’”

Individual appointments can also be scheduled if you cannot make the open auditions. Just call 419-626-1950 or 877-626-1950 or email bshaver@sanduskystate.com.
