The last thing Julia Marks wants to do is audition with her little brother for a production of THE WIZARD OF OZ. Nevertheless, she's selected to to play a munchkin because of her diminutive size. Narrator Tara Sands has Julia's precocious-little-girl voice down pat. Sands also makes quick and smooth transitions to suit Julia's mercurial moods. She projects Julia's sadness over her dog's death, her calculated whining and sarcasm, and her youthful bravado when interacting with the play's adult cast members. As the play nears completion, Sands delivers Julia's anxiety and elation. Sands also creates believable adults in director Shawn Barr and Olive, an adult "little person" who shows Julia that there's more to people than their size.
