The Wiz Live! – NBC Musical

NBC has revived the movie musical with their hugely popular stagings of The Sound of Music Live! starring country superstar Carrie Underwood and Peter Pan Live! featuring Girls star Allison Williams and now the network has decided on it’s next magical production, the Wizard of Oz adaptation The Wiz. Open casting calls for roles in the sure to be global sensation The Wiz Live! are set to be held soon and a number of aspiring actors, singers and dancers will soon have a once in a lifetime chance to be in an unforgettable project.

The Wiz Live! will be a live NBC movie based on the 1978 film starring music legends Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and Nipsey Russell directed by Academy Award winner Sidney Lumet. This beloved adaptation of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz tells the classic story of Dorothy and her incredible journey down the yellow brick road through the magical Emerald City.

Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan (The Oscars, Steel Magnolias, Bonnie and Clyde) of this multi-cultural musical interpretation will add an incredible dance and movement element thanks to a fabulous

collaboration with the world-famous Cirque du Soleil which will only further enhance the unforgettable writing of William F. Brown (who created the acclaimed book), and music and lyrics by Charlie Smalls which will be given an update and polish by Emmy Award nominee and Broadway superstar Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song Trilogy, Independence Day, The Simpsons). The film will be directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (In the Heat of the Night,  A Raisin in the Sun, Aida) and will make an extended run on Broadway following the broadcast. This could be the chance for a group of talented performers to not only feature in a major network production but achieve Broadway stardom as well!

  23. Gee

    My daughter “Elegant-Camille would be great in any role in this production. She’s very animated and loves to act and sing. She does both very well. She loves the movie the Wiz to the point where she mouths the words in her sleep. She most exceptionally performs as “the number’s lady”. She sings and acts out “He’s the wiz” exactly the way Miss one does it . It’s very exciting to see and hear. I believe my 8 soon to be 9 year old would be perfect for the role of Miss One. Just imagine what a very talented child in this role could bring to an already spectacular live production. Please consider her for this or any role and please let us know if and when auditions will be held in the Chicago area. P.S. She looks EXACTLY like young Raven-Symone. She’s reminded of this everywhere we go.

  24. Jazmine Nicole Smith

I am also a certified Texas Thespian, have had solo voice parts in musicals and have one award for my smile on stage.I am bubbly energetic and love to sing and act my passion shows.

  54. Trevor

    Hello, my name is Trevor. I am 19 years old. I am a 6’2″ athletic figured black male who is looking for the next challenge in life. I do have a very small but decorated acting background and an ever growing passion for it. My most notable acting experience was at the age of twelve when I was casted as King Louie in the play Marie Antoinette, which was performed at the Royal Exchange Theater in Manchester, England (which is where I grew up). I have not done much acting since then. At a very young age I had to choose between sports and acting and at the time sports was the logical choice because that’s what most of my friends chose. I have decided to pursue acting because to be honest I miss it, I realize now that it is the choice I should have made a while back. So I think giving it my all while I am still young, mature with a great work ethic is the best decision for my life. I have a lot of charisma and great public speaking skills so I do believe that I am well prepared for the challenge that comes ahead.

    Name: Jessica Armstrong
    Age: 15
    Birthday: August 2, 1999
    resident: WIlson, NC

    Hello my name is Jessica Armstrong and through my understanding I heard your company plans to hire new young actors. I know that your company is a worldwide leader for famous actors and I would like to apply for a position. I live in Wilson, NC. I am currently 15 years old, and turning 16 on August 2nd. I’ve been acting since I was in Kindergarten, and been in plays since 5th grade. Acting is like another part of me. In 7th grade i played Scuttle in the Little Mermaid, the Hippo in Anansi and the Spider, Grandma Josephine in Willy Wonka, and i currently just finished a play. I played Pumbaa from the Lion King. I am familiar with all the qualities of acting. Also, the history of it of how it began with William Shakespeare all the way up to Marcel Marceau. I am currently gaining in my experiences and skills. With my education and work experience, i feel confident that i can perform a very good job as one of your own. Confidence is key. It’s what everybody is asking for in everything. Especially, when you are on stage or better yet in movies. My family know that i love acting, singing, rapping, and dancing. Well technically only my brother know that I write music. It would mean the world for them to know that i actually made something of myself. I always dreamed of being in movies or even making music videos. I also make vines. I would definitely would love an interview. I feel like I can inspire some people. There aren’t that many young actresses my age. If you are reading this I appreciate it, because not everybody do.

  69. Briana Wilson

    Hello! My name is Briana Renée Wilson. I am 15, going on 16, years of age. I began performing when I was real little at my church, singing in the choir, doing the annual Easter speech and always participating in our Gospel Plays. However my first “stage debut” was at my elementary school when I scored the role of the Tin Man in our baby production of The Wizard of Oz. I have been in nine stage productions since, some titles including The Tale of Snow White, Annie! The Musical, and Hairspray the Musical. I have had the privilege to perform with the Grand Blanc Indoor Percussion Ensemble for two years (one of which I played the timpani, the other I was a dancer), and the Grand Blanc Winter Guard’s varsity AA Squad for one year.
    I am a 5′ 4” African American female. I weight approximately 125lbs. I have hair and eyes so dark brown that most people believe that they’re black. I have carmel colored skin and beauty mark, or as some call it a mole, on my right cheek. I am quirky, sweet, hardworking, and know how to take instructions well. Thank you for reading and I hope to be in contact soon!
