Beginning December 5, the PRP Theatre Arts Department will perform The Wizard of Oz.
Junior Meredith Aliff, who will play Dorothy in the play, is very excited for the upcoming show and hopes to do well. Aliff explained that as a little girl she always loved Judy Garland movies. Her favorite song from the show is Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
Crew members are also working hard on the show, and some of them find it very stressful. “I will rip my hair out,” said Stage Manager Christina McCune. She described rehearsals as edgy and nerve-racking. Assistant Stage Manager Tyler Gipson agrees, but says that everything will run smoothly soon.
This will be the largest cast in many years. Adding to those numbers are elementary students from Eisenhower and Johnsontown, who will act as munchkins.
Performances will take place on December 5, 6, 12, and 13 at 7:30. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at Prpfinearts.weebly.com. Prices vary from $7 to $10 dollars.
