The Wizard of Oz- Senior
Welcome to the wonderful Wizard Of Oz! In this class, students will be able to perform in a full length production of the Wizard of Oz! Everybody will be involved in as many scenes and musical numbers as possible. This show will be a collaborative effort where all actors' ideas will be showcased. As we work together, there will be lots of room for imaginative play, character exploration and creativity within the scenes. You won’t only have one role, but two or three, as there will be many elements needed to hold the show together. Every week, there will be warm ups and group games before we begin to put the show on its feet. We’re even going to team up with the other youth class at The Depot so we can have the most massive ensemble imaginable!
