The Wizard of Oz, a Modern New Play
Saturday, March 6th and Sunday, March 7th at
2:00pm and 7:30pm
The Woodland Opera House is proud to present our Young Adult Performer’s Series production “The Wizard of Oz- a New Modern Play” adapted for the stage by Jon Jory from the book written by L. Frank Baum. The play is generously underwritten by Music to Grow on Music Therapy Services, Inc.
Directed by Cheryl Watson the play was rehearsed completely remotely and recorded on Zoom. “We wanted to provide an outlet for our skilled teen acting students who are eager to continue performing. To rehearse safely, Cheryl devised an efficient rehearsal system on Zoom and spent countless hours creating delightful virtual backdrops to transform each cast member’s living room “over the rainbow”, explains Executive Director Angela Baltezore. “We wanted to provide a complete performance experience for the cast and audience including creative, colorful costumes designed by Denise Miles.”
In this faithful and playfully short adaptation of the original novel, Dorothy (Mia Fisher) lands in Oz and must find her way home to Kansas. But first she must find the yellow brick road, make it through the poppy field, avoid the flying monkeys, and defeat the Wicked Witch (Frances Thayer). No big deal.
Luckily, she has the Scarecrow (Kate Kasten), Tin Man (Zoe Rosendale), Cowardly Lion (Brady Stephens), and Glinda the Good Witch (Amelia Robinson-Burmester) on her side. There are some surprises along the way in this faithful adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s classic story.
