PROGRAM OVERVIEW: Students will learn beginning & intermediate-level skills in acting, vocal production and movement. Actors prepare a fully-produced, ensemble-driven adaptation of Wizard of Oz with costumes, props, lighting, and scenic elements. Rehearsals right at your school!

ABOUT THE WIZARD OF OZ:  The Wizard of Oz follows the story of Dorothy, a young girl who finds herself somewhere over the rainbow in the magic land of Oz. Though at first magical and enchanting, Dorothy soon realizes that she wants nothing more than to get back to Kansas. Along the way she learns that not all witches are wicked (though some definitely are) and Things are not always what they seem. Dorothy ultimately learns that growing up takes brains, courage, and a lot of heart.

We have switched to a new, robust and more user-friendly customer relationship system, which will 
include ticketing, enrollment, passes, memberships, merchandise, and more.  When you use our system the first time, the system will email you a confirmation link which you will have to click to confirm your information. Some families may need to create a new password. We encourage you not to use the “guest checkout,” as your history, promo codes, and other vital tools and information will not be connected to your transaction.  Welcome to Arts People – we hope you enjoy using this system!
