Auditions...on Video!

On Friday night, the middle Bantams auditioned for The Wizard of Oz.; this morning Bantam10 was called back as a potential "Featured Munchkin." (He sure would like to be the Mayor of Munchkinland!)

And tonight, thanks to Papa Rooster's willingness to spend the time uploading and editing them, I am pleased to present, for your viewing pleasure, their one-minute auditions! Those are all the directors, seated at the table, and behind them are other auditioners and their families, whom you will hear but won't see.

Bantam13 went first, with "What's This? from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

But the real crowd-pleaser was Bantam10's rendition of the theme song from The Muppet Show! In fact, as you'll see, the crowd noise was so loud that one point he couldn't hear his music!

Wasn't that fun??!!

And now, we wait...for the cast list to go the morning...sometime...!

UPDATED: It's up! Late on Saturday night!

And Bantam10 is the Mayor of Munchkinland!!!

But Bantam13's name does not appear on the list.

We hope this is a mistake. How very, very disconcerting.

And it may be awhile before we'll find out anything.

In need of your prayers, friends....

Great job on both of the auditions! I'll be praying that the omission is only a typo...

Erin said...

They did a terrific job, both of them! I do hope the omission was a mistake as well, they both were excellent!

What fun to see the auditions! They both did a super job! B10's number was a great one to be outstanding with--lots of energy! I'm so pleased he got the mayor position, and yes, do hope it's a mistake that B13 was omitted!! Pianomum

They are both so talented. You should be very proud!

Maybe B-13 was considered too tall and manly for a munchkin? Too mature? Yeah, I bet that's the reason!

Tell both guys, Great Job!

Thanks everyone for your sympathetic encouragement!!

AC--you're right about one thing. Poor B13 could never have passed for a Munchkin, no matter HOW good an actor he may be....
