Description

Join Youth Theatre Northwest (YTN) on a journey to Oz in this original adaption of L. Frank Baum’s masterpiece, The Wizard of Oz. The script, written by Seattle playwright, artist, and educator Gillian Jorgensen, has many similarities to the movie but is based mostly on the book, which has much more than the film could portray. The world of Oz is much stranger and full of surprises. Along with familiar characters such as Dorothy, Auntie Em, and the famous trio of the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, and Tin Man, you’ll meet the Hammerheads, Tollydiggle the Mouse Queen, the High Coco-Lorum of Thi, not two but four witches—Tattypoo, Gayelette, Zisca, and Glinda—plus munchkins, Emerald Citizens, and the Wizard of Oz himself, Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs.

The production of Wizard of Oz is directed by Kate Swenson with Cory Southwell and recommended for ages 8 and up.  The performances will be live-streamed on May 1st and 2nd at 2:00 pm, and available on demand throughout the remainder of May.
