The Shakespeare League of Pasadena is well on its way to The Emerald City. Its major 2009 musical production, “The Wizard of Oz,” has more to offer the San Gabriel Community than the yellow brick road has, well, yellow bricks! We’re talking costumes from 20th Century Fox, a raffle for several lucky winners to fly just like Dorothy and the wicked witch across the stage at Pasadena’s Ambassador Auditorium and a VIP reception with an original Munchkin on show night!!
Add one very talented dog (who’s been in several OZ productions) to play Toto, and the League’s biggest surprise…..the premiere of The Shakespeare League All Star Community Orchestra ……an orchestra made up of the best and brightest student musicians from both public and private high schools and colleges.
Although auditions won’t be held until January for the musical roles, several League members, under the direction of Drama Chair Lani Ridley, have already been on the “road” offering the OZapalooza Pre-Show to Rotaries, Masons, Senior Centers, Chambers, schools and Women’s organizations, to name a few. They will continue to perform around town from now until February 19. Dates of the musical are March 6-7, 2009.
The League has also just unveiled its ability to offer tickets through E-Ticket on its website: www.ShakespeareClub.org/wizard.
All of the proceeds of this magical and timeless tale will go to the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
