Interlakes Summer Theatre Presenting The Wiz Aug. 12-17

MEREDITH — The Interlakes Summer Theatre will present The Wiz  August 12– August 17.

This musical is adapted from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. As you probably remember it begins on a tumbledown farm in Kansas. Mother Nature takes charge and takes Dorothy, Nasia Thomas (who was in several productions at Interlakes in 2013) for a whirlwind ride to Oz where she meets the mama's boy Lion played by Darius Nelson, the hip Scarecrow, Saidu Sinlah, and the up-tight Tin Man, Basit Shittu. In this modern version, their adventures take them to the big city in the middle of a magical musical circus. It's a fantasy for today's boisterous world.
The Director of this fantasy, Kenneth Green (who also directed Godspell this year) was quoted as saying, "The Wiz is a side of Oz you've never seen before. It takes the story of Dorothy and her friends and updates it with fantastic Pop and R&B music written by Charlie Smalls and Luther Vandross. We will be taking the audience on a streetwise fun and hip journey through Oz, but it's also a lovely story of faith, friendship and family."

Call 888-245-6374 for tickets or visit the website: www.interlakestheatre.com.
