The Wizard of Oz at Country Playhouse starting Nov. 16

WATERLOO - Click heels and venture down the yellow brick road to the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse for a theatre experience.

The Wizard of Oz plays eight shows a week from Nov. 16 though Dec. 18.

After a twister hits her Kansas farm, Dorothy Gale is transported to the magical land of Oz.

She teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Cowardly Lion, and embarks on an epic journey, along with her faithful dog Toto, to find the mighty Wizard who can help them return home.

The Wizard of Oz is treasured by audiences young and old,” said Drayton Entertainment artistic director Alex Mustakas. “We are very excited to present this spectacular live production as the final production of our 2011 season.”  

The story is brought to life on stage by director Adam Furfaro, music director Peter Aylin, choreographer Linda Garneau, set designer Jean Claude Oliver, lighting designer Kevin Fraser, and costume designer Rachel Berchtold.

The cast includes Amy Wallis as Gale. Karen K. Edissi plays Dorothy’s devoted Auntie Em and Glinda the Good Witch. Larry Mannell is Uncle Henry and Brian McKay is the great and powerful Wizard of Oz.

Jackie Mustakas is the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, with Danielle Benton, Allan Gillespie, Sarah Higgins and Kevin Morris rounding out the adult ensemble. Canine performer Tilley will play Toto.

Fifty-two local children will perform with the professional cast.

Hundreds of youngsters from across the area auditioned in September:

The Wizard of Oz is an adaptation of the classic 1939 Hollywood film.

The Wellington Advertiser is among the sponsors of the show, which runs for five weeks.
