The Beeman Elementary School Chorus presents The Wizard of Oz on Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 7:00PM at Beeman School, 138 Cherry Street, Gloucester. All tickets for the production are $5.00 each and will be sold at the door the night of the performance.
The Wizard of Oz tells the story of Dorothy Gale from Kansas and her little dog Toto who is swept away to a magical land in a tornado and embarks on a quest to see the Wizard so he can help her return home. On her journey she meets three friends: the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion who travel to Oz with her. Each friend has their own special request of the Wizard. On her exciting journey Dorothy and her companions meet the Good Witch and the happy residents of Munchkin Land led by their Mayor as well as facing challenges from the Wicked Witch of the West, her army of soldiers and the flying monkeys. This endearing classic story celebrates friendship, inner strength, and the true meaning of home. The production features the classic songs: Follow The Yellow Brick Road, Ding Dong the Witch is Dead, If I Only Had a Brain, If I Were the King of the Forest and Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
The production features 25 fourth and fifth grade Beeman students and is directed by Beeman Music teacher Beth Goldberg and Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshop director and actress Heidi Dallin. Dallin was brought on board by the Gloucester Education Foundation initiative to support and enhance elementary school theatre by partnering teachers with theatre professionals.
