BROOKLYN BUZZ: Yellow brick road leads to Ridge
All the world is a stage and we all – including the children -play a part.
Keeping this in mind, the creative minds over at NarrowsCommunity Theater (NCT) present The Wizard of Oz, its secondannual Summer Youth production. The family-friendly musicalincludes all of your favorite characters like Dorothy, Tin Man,Lion, Scarecrow, Auntie Em, Glinda and even Toto, plus a cast ofMunchkins – many of whom are played by the under-12 set.
We looked for a show appropriate for youth and teenagers [and]realized that Wizard of Oz is a wonderful show for children, witha large cast and songs people know, explained Ann Gubiotti, NCT’spublicity manager. And with the theater, we could do a bigproduction.
Gubiotti is serious about the scale of the production. There areover 120 costumes, a myriad of scene changes, and, big use ofspecial effects, screen images and projections.
