The Webb Center held auditions for the production of “The Wizard of Oz” on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11. Twenty-two students auditioned for lead roles in the Camp Imagination musical; two casts of nine students each were chosen for the two sessions of camp. The first session of Camp Imagination runs from June 3– 14; second session runs June 17-28.
Auditions were open to all students enrolled in this year’s Camp Imagination entering the sixth grade or higher. “It is wonderful to cast a show when so much great talent is available. It is also difficult when you don’t have a part for every talented student.” commented Cathy Weiss, Executive Director of the Webb Center. “For the students that auditioned and didn’t receive a part- keep trying. An audition experience can be scary, but the more you participate the better you perform. We saw a lot of growth and improvement over the past year.”
The students chosen for main roles will spend the two weeks of Camp learning the show as an ensemble and depending on each other for success.
It’s not too late to register campers in the 7th – 12th grade range: the Webb Center is still looking for students interested in performing “The Wizard of Oz” and participating in classes like aerial dance, comedy improv, music and more! Registration materials are posted on the Webb Center’s website, www.dewpac.org, or for more information call the Box Office (928)684-6624.
