Follow the Yellow Brick Road

This week at the Creekside Theatre the students at George Elliot Secondary are presenting The Wizard of Oz for their annual spring production. Head down to the school and watch a fantastic group of friends help Dorothy find her way back to Kansas.

There are very few movies with enough appeal to keep attracting new audiences decades and even generations after the original release. The ones that do however become so ingrained in popular culture that in casual conversation the mere mention of a character, scene or setting is often enough to make plans with friends for a viewing of a classic film.

This week Lake Country residents have the opportunity to see an old family favourite presented as a live dramatic production. Drama students at George Elliot Secondary are inviting the community to follow them down the yellow brick road to the Emerald City in their rendition of The Wizard of Oz.

The students have spent hundreds of hours preparing for their roles. Behind the scenes the production crew has also been busy preparing one of the most elaborate set designs to come out of the school in years.

The Wizard of Oz by the GESS Full Moon Theatre Company runs nightly from Wednesday May, 11 until Saturday, May 14 at 7:00 p.m. A special matinee performance is also scheduled for May 14 at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are available at the door for $10 general admission, $7.50 for students and seniors, and $5 for children.
