I tried to take before and after photos.
Here are a few from the – short – time I spent in the back room with the munchkins; it was anxiety inducing.
I enjoy my job as a floating – do what I please – lady with a camera.
I believe that need for freedom with a camera comes from my dad.
What brings this play to Willow Springs?
Every October OZ FEST brings vendors and entertainers for a day of family fun.
This is the last year (and only second time) that Rebecca will direct the Wizard of Oz play – it’s been done for many years, with many different renditions (good and bad) and people are wanting a change in theme.
Might I suggest some ideas? The Sound of Music “A Day In Salzberg” or Seven Bride For Seven Brothers “Dress Like A Lumberjack and Eat Pancakes” Day…
Variety is good.
OZ Fest only lasted one day, but the play showed for two weekends.
We took Wiley to see at least three shows…of which, he watched most of two of them.
Luckily my husband took the baby much of the time, so I was free to record and photograph the memories.
My dad, who usually walks around with his camera, lent his SD/Memory card from his camera so I wouldn’t have to purchase one just for recording the show.
Before each show, three of Rebecca’s girls play music – fiddling and some more contemporary songs.
In this time, the audience can wait in line to buy popcorn/drinks and visit with friends.
I’m usually setting up my equipment, because I get to the theater late….
Just before the last show – during this pre-musical music – my younger brother Konnor opened the curtain while some of the cast members were dancing on stage and the entire audience got a good laugh.
What was a private laugh behind a curtain, was shared with the whole.
I love live theater.
When the show wrapped, I was sad it was over.
I appreciate all the time and work that went into making this show so fun to watch.
But, it wont be a cast full of children and teenagers. It will mostly be adults and a very small cast at that.
Wow…Christmas Carol? This year went fast.
Enjoy October, it will be over before we know it!
