Great experience. The Wizard of Oz.....all time classic. Full house of a sold out crowd. Ushers at the ready and helpful. Seating relatively easy to access. Production proved the implementation of upgraded acoustics. Major community dollars have enhanced that system with major physical rebuilds in the offing. Entertainment delightful! Small stage that the crews built and rebuilt like clockwork. Quality chorus line. First rate vocalists. It had a good collection of great costumes for the munchkins.....and all the rest of the cast. You KNEW you were in the Land of Oz!!! Footnotes: our little area had our very own DOROTHY!!! Dressed up with pig tales tied with plaid blue ribbons. Little shiny RED glitzy shoes! And she brought her very own TOTO!!! Basket included slung right over her arm! So sweet...so real. Many children in attendance even though this was an evening performance. Perhaps more from this small community being introduced to the Arts!
What a show! Great place to go and have an experience of a life time. Who thinks of a play when thinking of things to do with friends and/or loved ones. It's a great idea and fun for the whole family!
