Look Who’s Joining ‘The Wiz’

Performer and “Home” songstress, Stephanie Mills has joined the cast of NBC’s live musical version of “The Wiz.”

Appearing as Dorothy in the original broadway production, Mills will take on the role of “Auntie Em” in the network’s December 3, 2015 performance.

The search for Dorothy is still on and word is that the producers are looking for a fresh talent to take on the lead role, originally portrayed by Diana Ross in 1978.

Mills’ appointment to the role marks the first casting for the musical.
