"I was at an open call, I waited in line for hours and I just went in there like, 'Hey, let's find out what a New York audition is like. I didn't expect this." SHANICE WILLIAMS, the unknown singer/actress who landed the role of Dorothy in upcoming TV 'event' THE WIZ, had never been to an audition before she showed up to try out for the part earlier this year. She'll now lead a cast that includes David Allen Grier, Common and Queen Latifah when The Wiz airs live on U.S. TV in December (15).
