Description

This classic tale, in which a Kansas farm girl travels over the rainbow to discover the magical power of home, has been entertaining audiences for generations. Upstage is proud to present The Wizard of Oz!

All students 9 to 14 are welcome to join our after-school play production class on Thursday’s. The class introduces more advanced theatre vocabulary and technique through interactive theatre games and scene practice, as well as music and dance taught by professionals. The experience will include a fully realized final production with professionally designed sets, costumes, lights, sound and props. The teachers are highly qualified with many aggregate years experience in children’s theatre. Each child is encouraged to fully participate and is considered an integral part in our final production. Please check the production dates below, as we expect every child to be present for all performances.

Price includes a script, and downloads of the musical tracks to practice with at home. We provide costumes and props that will live at the theatre and be used in performances. Tickets are sold separately through a link provided by Upstage in the weeks prior to performances. DVD of the final Production is included in tuition.
