Wizard of Oz - Dorothy age and size
I noticed many people are doing Oz again and I was wondering if people who ahve done the show professionally or with community theatre (not kids theatre) have any insight on the right age/height/look for Dorothy.
I was called back for the role about 5 years ago and didnt get it to a 13 year old - I was 16 at the time or 15 and looked a lot like Judy Garland in the film and then about a year ago was called back again but this time for a dancer and the role of Dorothy went to a 30 year old.
Im average height and body type but working on losing weight but I was wondering would I even have a chance at playing the role. I've noticed most stage productions casy someone who looks WAYYYY younger like 12 than Just Garland did.
same goes for Leisl in the Sound of Music for which I have been called back twice.
would love to discuss or any advice on how to look even younger
