Welcome back to our guide for what’s casting in New York City! As usual, we’ve scoured the landscape to bring you information on all the best projects in film, theater, and television, based on information from the most reliable sources. This is show business we’re talking about, though, and as quickly as a play can bring down its curtain, a project can end before it’s even begun; that said, here’s what you can currently look out for!

Ease on down the road, New York actors! A nonunion production of the soulful musical, “The Wiz,” is casting for an upcoming NYC production, and we have the details you need to know—including how you can apply.

The tuner, produced by The New York Black Arts Festival, Inc., seeks African American actors for six principal roles including Dorothy, Tinman, Scarecrow, and the eponymous Wiz himself.

The production will rehearse this summer on evenings in New York City. The run is slated for July 8–16 at the Oberia Dempsey Theater in Harlem 

If hired, expect to be paid $75–$100/performance, with your travel expenses also covered. 

Keep following the yellow brick road: apply for “The Wiz” through Backstage right here (where you will also find audition materials!).
