Lopez Drama Is Off to See the Wizard
DATE: Nov 8
TIME: 3:45 p.m. & 6:30 p.m.
Tickets: $3 during lunch & at the Door
LOCATION: Lopez Middle School Auditorium, 23103 Hardy Oak
In celebration of 75 years along the yellow brick road, Lopez Drama proudly presents L. Frank Baum’s classic story The Wizard of OZ on November 8 at 3:45pm and 6:30pm.
While you may be most familiar with the 1939 movie version of “Oz”, you’ll find our production just a bit further over the rainbow in a stage adaptation of the original book. Our Dorothy has found silver shoes in Oz and encounters many interesting creatures along the way home to Kansas. The theatre department is thrilled to collaborate with the English department by bringing to life on stage the book 7th grade Pre-AP English classes will study in the spring.
The production process began in September with over 100 talented students auditioning over a three day period. Lopez theatre students were invited to audition and ultimately a company of 60+ students was chosen for the cast and crew. Joining this talented group are two Lopez teachers, Mr. Jon Shea and Mrs. Andrea Hopkins in special cameo roles.
Several weeks of rehearsal will culminate in two performances on November 8 at 3:45 & 6:30 pm. Tickets will be available the week of the show for $3 (pre-school age children are free). Tickets will be sold at Lopez during all lunches November 4-8. Tickets can also be purchased at the door. We hope you’ll join us over the rainbow in the Lopez Middle School cafetorium on November 8 for The Wizard of Oz!
