The Wizard of Oz
By L. Frank Baum
Directed by James Fagan Tait
One of the most beloved family musicals of all time comes to Shuswap Theatre. Join Dorothy and Toto, along with their new friends, the Cowardly Lion, The Tin Man and Scarecrow as they follow the yellow brick road to find the Wizard of Oz, whom they are sure will help Dorothy get back to Kansas. Along the way they face many challenges – a wicked witch, flying monkeys and sleep inducing plants – but together they find the resources to carry on.
Enjoy the songs including Over The Rainbow, Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead, If I Only Had a Brain, We’re Off to See the Wizard, The Merry Old Land of Oz and more.
Shuswap Theatre is, for the first time, offering a relaxed performance which makes it possible for persons with various challenges to enjoy live theatre. This will be the second Sunday matinee, December 1st at 1:30. More about relaxed performances…
The Wizard of Oz is presented by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK www.tamswitmark.com
A Red Plaid Shirt
by Michael Wilmot
Directed by Frank Manning
Two friends fill the void left by retirement in different ways; Marty decides he wants to explore the open road on a Harley while Fred decides to pay more attention to his health, inventing many new ailments along the way. With a little “subtle redirection” from their wives and a creative solution to a very unusual problem (which may or may not include a homemade coffin) they find the right track… eventually. Plenty of laughs.
A Red Plaid Shirt is produced by special arrangement with Playwrights Guild of Canada.
April 24 – 26
