A mix of adults and children will play the characters. Characters that have more potential to be children than adults are the Munchkins, Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Glinda and Toto (if not played by a dog). The roles that have more potential to be adults are the Wizard, the Tin Man, the Lion, the Wicked Witch, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. The groups (Munchkins, Flying Monkeys, Soldiers, Residents of Oz) are a mix of adults and children, although most of the munchkins are more likely to be children.
