As always, thanks so much to everyone who took time and invested energy in our auditions for The Wizard of Oz. It’s always nice to have options – and I sincerely thank you all for making the choices so difficult!
While I wish we could take advantage of ALL of the talent shown at the audition, our resources are limited, and therefore the number of participants in the show must be limited. If you don’t see your name in the cast list below, I hope you’ll consider being part of the production in another capacity. We have lots of needs outside of the footlights, and I’d love to talk to you about how you can help. Please drop me a line at Jeffrey@Playhouse2000.com.
If you DO see your name below, please send a note to Stage Manager Rachel Boland (email@example.com) to confirm your participation, and join us for first meeting on Monday, June 11 at 7:30 pm in the VK Garage. If you cannot attend, contact Rachel to get an information form to complete and return.
I am SO looking forward to the adventure that we’re setting out on. Let’s all follow that yellow brick road! See you soon.
