Little Rock, Arkansas–The Weekend Theater held open auditions for The Wiz, a soulful play based off the original Wizard of Oz. Auditions started on Saturday and ran through Sunday. There were two sets of auditions, morning and evening, to allow people with different work schedules to try out.
Some of the actors who auditioned are from Little Rock, North Little Rock, Conway, Arkadelphia and other Central Arkansas towns. None of the actors are paid but instead volunteer their time and talents to The Weekend Theater.
“The Weekend Theater is all about the community and the community coming together,” said Jamie Scott Blakey, Artistic Director. “We are very busy. We run ten shows a year. We are always rehearsing and running a show.”
The Wiz will run through October and November.
