Follow Town’s Yellow Brick Road with The Wizard of Oz

July 14, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - July 30, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

“We’re off to see the Wizard… the wonderful Wizard of Oz!” And we want YOU to join us on the journey.

Donning those famous ruby reds as Dorothy Gale from Kansas is Sarah Hoffman (Joseph…). Along the way she, and Toto, played by Ellie Matthews (The Little Mermaid Jr.) meet the brainless Scarecrow, taken by David LaTorre (The Music Man), the heartless Tin Man, portrayed by Hans Boeschen (Jekyll & Hyde) and the courage-less Cowardly Lion, played by Davis Herndon (The All Night Strut). Their efforts to meet the Great and Powerful Oz, in the hands of Town newcomer Manny Moitoso, are often hijacked by the fiendish foe, none other than the Wicked Witch herself, portrayed by Carol Beis (A Christmas Story: The Musical). Thank goodness for the magic of Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, taken by Lisa Baker (Into the Woods). Throw in a humorous Guard, in the capable hands of Todd Gustafson (Bright Star), some miraculous munchkins (portrayed by a bevy of talented young people) and amazing dancing in the form of tornados and poppies and jitterbugs, oh my! Plus, you’ll encounter the inhabitants of the merry old land itself ~ where we “laugh the day away!” The cast of 50+ (and some magical flying by ZFX!) is sure to make this summer one you won’t forget ~ where we go over the rainbow!

The Wizard of Oz is directed and choreographed by Shannon Willis Scruggs with musical direction by Katie Gatch. Billy Bishop leads the costume team, Corey Langley served as set designed, Isaiah Gray designed lights with stage management by Dawn Keenan.

The show runs July 14-30 with 7:30 PM performances Thursdays and Fridays and 3:00 PM Saturdays and Sundays.
