The timeless “Wizard of Oz”, by Frank Baum, celebrates its 80th birthday this year. Becky Guyer, one of the founders of Streetcar Company some 48 years ago, will be directing this production with Karen Jordan of Laconia handling the music and Erin Lovett-Sherman is choreographer. Doreen Shepard & Becky Fredette will be stage managers and the huge job of producer is Raelyn Cottrell.
“We are thrilled to be bringing this great musical back to our Laconia roots and to be partnering with the Belknap Mill for rehearsals” says Guyer. This production will be staged at Laconia High School on April 3rd, 4th and 5th.
Anyone auditioning should be prepared to sing a short song and will learn a few dance steps as well as do some character reading and improvs.
