Wizard of Oz-Beijing Playhouse Audition Announcement


Wizard of Oz, or more accurately, the Amazing Adventures of Dorothy Gale in the Middling Kingdom of Oz. 20 adult and 10 child actors and singers are needed for this munchkinized Christmas musical comedy.

Join Beijing Playhouse for song and dance this Christmas. A fairy tale for the children with a whole level of humor for the adults-a munchkinized Christmas musical comedy for adults and children alike. Be prepared for a whole new zany twist on a classic story.

In true British comedy tradition, audience members are invited to cheer and boo and hiss as Dorothy, Tin Guy, Not So Brave Lion and Scaredy Crow Man find their way to Santa, uh, I mean, the Wizard himself. Glenda the Good Witch, with a penchant for cigars and martinis, helps them along. The Wicked Witch of the West tries to stop them at every turn. Munchkins and flying monkeys all help Dorothy and her friends discover the magic of Christmas.

Wizard of Oz has served up raucous family entertainment on the West End every Christmas for centuries. A cast of 30, with crazy Christmas costumes and happy music, make this show perfect for families - especially children.

 Audition  Audition


All 30 roles open. Ability to perform in English is required; but English as a native language is not required. (Toto may be a non-speaking acrobatic/dance part for which a performer does not need to speak English).

Auditions are open and anyone can come. We love discovering new talent. We request that interested actors complete the Actor Audition Form in advance.  It helps the directors (Request one and we’ll send it to you). We're looking for 5 boys, age 6-17; 8 men, age 18-60; 2 men, age 60-80, 5 girls, age 6-17; 8 women, age 18-60; 2 women, age 60-80.


Monologues are optional and encouraged but not necessary. You'll do a live reading from the script and will perform scenes from the show with other actors. You will sing a song of your choosing. The choreographer will teach you a simple dance.

We love non-native English speaking actors in our shows. If you are non-native English speaker, we strongly suggest bringing a memorized English 60 second language monologue. (Call backs, if necessary, Wednesday and maybe Thursday, September 25 and 26 at 6:30 pm.)


Performances are weekday evenings and weekend matinees and evenings, December 6-22, 2013. Rehearsals are evenings at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 2:30 pm in October and November in Sanlitun. The first week of performances will be at British School of Beijing's Shunyi campus. The second and third weeks' performance locations are NOSC theatre.
