AUNT EM: Female (Range: Mezzo Soprano, G3-C5)
Dorothy’s Aunt. Life has not been easy for her and promises little else. Harsh towards Dorothy at times, but acts out of love.
DOROTHY: Female (Range: Mezzo Soprano, G3-B5)
Bright eyed and alive as can be. Would rather remain a child as long as possible instead of accepting the responsibilities of adulthood.
UNCLE HENRY: Male (Non-Singing)
Dorothy’s Uncle. Physically run down from years of hard work on the farm. Often acts as the voice of reason towards Aunt Em.
ADDAPERLE: Female (Range: Mezzo Soprano, F3-C5)
Good Witch of the North. Has magic powers she refers to as “doing tricks.” Her magic abilities don’t always pan out as well as she would like them to.
YELLOW BRICK ROAD (Four Dancers): Male or Female
Four dancing actors combine to create the Yellow Brick Road. Metaphorically represents the road Dorothy travels down, encouraging her along the way.
SCARECROW: Male (Range: Tenor, D3-A4)
Tired of being a scarecrow and the prospect of not going anywhere. Embarks on the journey to see the Wiz in hopes he can provide a brain.
TIN MAN: Male (Range: Baritone, E3-A4)
Human at one time. Lost all his limbs to a cursed axe. Joins in the journey in hopes the Wiz will provide him a heart because “it isn’t enough to be good looking.”
LION: Male (Range: Baritone, G2-Bb4)
Travels around the jungle scaring people, but has “a yellow streak a mile wide.” Coward state stems from deeper mother issues and gets regular counseling from an owl. Joins in the journey to see the Wiz to gain some courage.
GATEKEEPER: Male (Non-Singing)
Guards the gate to the Emerald City.
THE WIZ: Male (Range: Tenor, C3-A4)
All powerful leader over the land of Oz. Hides his true nature behind the façade of a temperamental leader. His true identity is an enigma.
EVILLENE: Female (Range: Alto, Bb3-Db5)
Wicked Witch of the West. Low-down evil. Not a kind bone in her body nor kind thought in her rotten mind.
LORD HIGH UNDERLING: Male (Non-Singing)
Weak coward. Evillene’s number one.
WINGED MONKEY: Male (Non-Singing)
Servant of the Wicked Witch of the West. Summoned to do her bidding. The mere mention of him brings fear.
GLINDA: Female (Range: Alto, C4-Eb5)
Good Witch of the South. Prettiest of all the witches. Very wise in the way of show business.
WIZ SINGERS (Four Singers): Male or Female, (Range: Flexible, F4-Db5/F3-Db4)
Four strong harmony singers who primarily provide the backing vocals for the entire show. These singers could possibly be another singing lead role. For example: Evillene, Glinda, Aunt Em or Addapele as these characters only sing a single song each.
