    Can’t wait to work with you.

  2. Danny says:

    When is the under 18 casting?

  3. Christina says:

    Work permits in Michigan are on a per project basis( for minors) not 6 month. It’s annoying. It pisses them off if you don’t have your ducks in a row:-p

  4. Eric Gaither says:

    Wow, what an incredible opportunity for not only myself and other aspiring actors and actresses, but Michigan in general . I told my mom about how a prequel to the Wizard of Oz was going to start shooting in Pontiac and her head nearly exploded. I’ll most definitely be waiting bright eyed and bushy tailed come June 11th morning, to be part of this incredible project. I can’t wait.

  5. Ken Patriquin says:

    This is a great opportunity for any of us who love the oz books. Also, I have a town drama association that may be excited about this opportunity. We do dramas 2x a year here but would love to try for the film. Will contact them.

  6. Erica Johnson says:

    I’m so very exited for this opportunity, Finallyy something were my height will be appreciated!!! haha :)

  7. Trudy says:

    Many Mi. Actors will be involved with The DWIFF that day…Is there a email we can submit our photo & resume for Oz? Most of us committed to DWIFF before we knew about this open call.

    Sounds cool to me

  9. Kathy Zoubareff says:

    If something happens and I cannot come to the June 11th audition, I will send in my application as a back-up. It sounds so hot to me.

  10. Kathy Vigna says:

    I have been watching the Wizard of OZ all of my life.
    It is one of my favorite movies and I love the song Some where over the rainbow, this would be a dream come true.

  11. Carol Nicholas says:

    I have a Cairn Terrier who has been through numerous obedience classes and is a registered therapy dog. This dog LOVES to train and learn. Is there an opening for an anecestor to Toto?

  12. MIMI says:

    Can you be fat to be an extra? Serious question…

  13. admin says:


    Extras are needed of all sizes, heights and looks. It just depends on the roles.

  14. Jennifer says:

    How early should people arrive? Others are telling me to go at 7am! Is this necessary? Thanks! :)

  15. Concerned says:

    Is showing up at 1:45 a problem? Will I still have a chance of being an extra or will most things be filled by then?

  16. Colleen says:

    What do you have to bring with you to the casting call? And will they be casting non speaking roles also?

  17. Sharon says:

    Do we need to bring a professional photo and resume with us to be a “Extra”? I do not have one but wanted to know if I should put something together for this? Anyone’s input would be great! Thanks!

  18. admin says:


    You just need to bring a photo. Any current photo will work. A resume is not needed at the open call.

  22. Barb says:

    We submitted a photo page with pertinent info for my 14 year old daughter – are extra roles still being cast?

  23. Teresa says:

    Will there be a call for youth extras? I direct a local (Huron Valley) youth acting program and all of my students are anxious to hear.
