Wizard of Oz Cast

Author By Administrator

Remember, the character you show when you look at a cast list is much more important than a character in a play.

Thank you to each and every one of you who auditioned for The Wizard of Oz. We so admire your bravery and hard work; you made this a difficult task for us all! All cast please meet at 3:30pm tomorrow in the theatre for our first rehearsal. If you were not cast, please consider joining the technical crew (i.e. lighting, sound, set, costumes, etc.). The tech crew informational meeting is Friday, September 8th after the LoftPAC meeting.
