Davis Musical Theatre Company has announced that its Young Performers Theatre Production is off to see the wizard.
Patrons may follow the yellow brick road to the Young Performers Theatre presentation of “The Wizard of Oz” beginning Saturday, March 2, and running through March 24.
This family favorite centers on Dorothy Gale, who dreams of more brightly colored worlds than the gray Kansas plains can offer her. When a twister hits her family farm and carries her away to another world, she teams up with the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion to seek the mysterious Wizard of Oz — all the while trying to stay out of the clutches of the evil Wicked Witch of the West.
This production is directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson, with musical direction by Chris Congdon. Audience members will hear all of the popular songs, including “Over the Rainbow” and “We’re Off to See the Wizard,” staged with imaginative, colorful scenery and whimsical costumes.
Performance are at 2:15 p.m. Saturdays, March 2-23, and Sunday March 24, and 7:15 p.m. Friday, March 22.
The cast includes actors from Davis, Vacaville, Woodland and Sacramento, featuring Dorothy (Petra Favorite), the Scarecrow (Cooper Johnson), the Tin Man (Rebecca Paskowitz), the Cowardly Lion (Noah Papagni), the Wicked Witch of the West (Dre Caven), Glinda (Sarah Green), the Wizard (Utsav Bhargava), Aunti Em (Jenna Karoly) and Uncle Henry (Joseph Thompson), along with an ensemble of young actors ages 7-17.
Tickets are $8 per person plus a $2 facility fee. To reserve seats, call 530-756-3682 or visit www.dmtc.org.
