The Wizard of Oz Broadway Performers Grades: 6th-8th Wednesdays: 6:15-7:45 p.m. Dates: 9/4-11/20 Performance: Wednesday 11/20 Venue: Greenhouse Theater Center, Lincoln Park Address: 2257 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60614 The Wizard of Oz is a timeless classic starring Dorothy and Toto, a girl and her dog with a knack for trouble, who suddenly find themselves far from home: "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." They awake in a dreamlike place, but quickly find the "Merry Old Land of Oz" lives in fear of the Wicked Witch of the West, the monkey, Nikko, and their dangerous dancing "Jitterbugs." With the guidance of some sweet new Munchkin friends, and a pair of magical ruby slippers gifted from Glinda the Good Witch, Dorothy journeys down "The Yellow Brick Road" to seek the mysterious Wizard of Oz who may be able to send her back to Kansas. But the friends she makes along the way --a Scarecrow seeking a brain, a Tinman seeking a heart, and a cowardly Lion seeking courage --help Dorothy discover the power she has had inside her all along. And the memory of her loving family, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, sustains Dorothy on her adventure as she remembers "there's no place like home." Skyline's Broadway Performers is a no-cut program designed for middle school actors to level up by learning advanced performance skills as they bring The Wizard of Oz to life onstage. Skillfully guided by a professional teaching artist, Performers are coached in solo vocal technique, sophisticated character development, and complex musical theatre choreography in classic musical numbers such as “Over the Rainbow,” “Yellow Brick Road,” and “Merry Old Land of Oz.” From the moment auditions kick off on the first day, Performers feel the exhilaration of lighting up the stage as they showcase their talents. In addition to creating a full musical ensemble, every actor who participates is assigned a named role. The Wizard of Oz offers a perfect balance of dramatic, comedic, and enchanting roles where every actor can shine. Actors are given scripts, music, choreography videos, and access to more helpful materials on Skyline’s exclusive Actor Resource Page. Families receive detailed instructions on how to assemble an original costume, adding the perfect finishing touch to The Wizard of Oz. Join Skyline’s Broadway Performers to focus talent and teamwork into a stunning final performance.
