The timeless “Wizard of Oz” tale has been adapted into a dazzling musical.  A cyclone carries Dorothy and Toto to the magical Land of Oz.  When Dorothy’s house squashes the Wicked Witch of the East, she is ecstatically thanked by the liberated Munchkins and given permission to wear the witch’s powerful silver slippers.  From there, Baum’s lovable characters, rubber-legged Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Woodsman, join Dorothy on a journey to meet the great Oz.  While on their trek, they battle the Wicked Witch of the West, who is determined to get revenge for the death of her sister.

Auditions:  Staged Reading, Law & Order: Nursery Rhyme Unit
 
Directed by Doug Meyers
 
What's a staged reading?  A reading of the play with minimal blocking and only two rehearsals and a performance!  Perfect for those who would like to be on stage but can't invest the time required for a full production.
 
About the show:  Is there a bigger group of psychotics and sociopaths than nursery rhyme characters?  Read some nursery rhymes — you know it’s true!  That makes heinous crimes, such as the tragic case of Humpty Dumpty, quite difficult to solve.  Detective Green and the Punnish Sir (Yes, he’s always scrambling for egg puns!)  have been called in to investigate a crime scene where a Mister Humpty Dumpty has been found shattered and fowl play is suspected.  They have one hour to solve the crime — the same time frame as a typical Law and Order episode, minus commercials.  Can they do it?  The yolk’s on you if you think this hilarious tongue-in-cheek play is only for young children.  There are so many puns and plot twists in this comic romp, even the playwrights were surprised by the ending! 
 
Auditions:  Tuesday, April 14 from 7:00 until 9:00 at Jackson's First Presbyterian Church, 743 W Michigan Avenue, Jackson.  No preparation necessary.
 
Performance:  Saturday, May 9, 1:00, Jackson Symphony Orchestra Building.
