Last month I blogged about the open call for The Wiz in New York City. Well it took place yesterday and it looks like they had a huge turnout.
NBC’s holiday production of “The Wiz Live!,” is set for Thursday, Dec. 3. Today, the network hosted an open casting call for the role of ‘Dorothy’ at New York’s Telsey + Company.
The audition notice revealed that the network was “looking for a female, African-American performer over the age of 18, who “must have an extraordinary voice that can still tell a story, and maturity with a youthful energy.” Those interested were asked to be prepared to perform a short section of ‘Home,’ Ease on Down the Road,’ or ‘Be a Lion’ a capella.
