The Vista Arts Center’s production of 'The Wizard of Oz' coming up

The Vista Arts Center will return to the stage at The Ivoryton Playhouse with performances of the beloved musical adventure, “The Wizard of Oz!” in February, according to a release.

“The Wizard of Oz affords members of the shoreline theatre community the opportunity to join with Vista members to tell the story of Dorothy’s adventure in the Land of Oz. Using simple props and scenic elements, the all-ability cast portrays characters from L. Frank Baum’s story and performs musical numbers from the beloved movie,” the release said

Vista members will perform on stage and provide support backstage and had the chance to be involved with the production, and “support their peers while showcasing their own talents and abilities,” the release said.
“A group of Vista members worked to create promotional videos for the show by interviewing cast and crew members to learn more about what it takes to put on a show of this magnitude. Another group of Vista members greatly contributed to the show by creating the scenic elements for the show which will be projected on stage.
"These efforts and the inclusive nature of this production are sure to set the show apart and provide a memorable version of The Wizard of Oz, like you’ve never seen before.”
