The Wizard of Oz
A Livestreamed Workshop Reading
By L. Frank Baum
Dramatized by Andrew Scanlon
December 3 – 6, 2020
December 6 presentation SOLD OUT!
Alberta Theatre Projects is thrilled to announce a special livestream reading of L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, a new play commission dramatized by playwright Andrew Scanlon and directed by Haysam Kadri.
A prairie tornado sees young Dorothy and her little dog Toto transported from the fields of Kansas to the wonderfully strange and vibrant world of Oz. An iconic cast of loveable characters help Dorothy on her journey to find the all-powerful Wizard of Oz, and hopefully, a way back home. That’s if they can avoid falling into the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West. A classic adventure about the power of friendship, The Wizard of Oz reminds us of the simple beauty and magic of home.
Watch from the comfort of your own home as the actors read this new script-in-development LIVE from the Martha Cohen Theatre stage! Share in this fun and lively presentation of a classic tale with the whole family!
Starring: Kevin Corey, Daniel Fong, Elinor Holt, Tara Jackson, Kevin Rothery, Tenaj Williams and Kiana Wu
