About the Show...
  We are doing a version of The Wizard of Oz that was written in 1987 for the Royal Shakespeare Company of London and was first performed in the Barbizon Theatre.  It utilizes most of the Harold Arlen music that was written for the MGM Judy Garland movie but was left on the cutting room floor.

  All of the familiar tunes from the movie are included as well.  We are looking to do a
rather unconventional staging of this production.  The characters will all be the same, but the sets and the costumes may be a bit on the surrealistic side.  We hope to make this a production that children will love and also one that the adults in our audience will enjoy because it won't "look" like the movie.

  The design is still developing but we do hope to include some special effects and lighting that will be
new adventures for OCT and our audience. - Ken Roberts, Director
