GAOS - Wizard of Oz with Scarecrow & the Lion

Mid Morning Mix // Events// Entertainment// Art & Culture // Nov. 23, 2017

We're off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz...

GAOS stars Paddy (Scarecrow) & Larry (The Cowardly Lion), with Katt from the Mid Morning Mix

Geneva Amateur Operatic Society (GAOS) always have a pantomime at this time of year. Though technically this one's not a panto, it's all set to be an exciting family musical show with plenty of song and dance.

The well-known children's story tells the tale of Dorothy and her little dog, Toto, who live on Aunt Em and Uncle Henry's farm amid the wheat fields of Kansas. One day, a tornado sends the farmhouse spinning up into the sky with Dorothy and Toto inside it. They end up amongst the Munchkins in the Land of Oz. Dorothy eventually learns that the only way to get back home again is to ask the enigmatic Wizard of Oz for help. Her attempts to find the Wizard in the company of the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion are frustrated by the Wicked Witch of the West. Will they ever get back to the farm?

The Wizard of Oz is one of the best-known American stories containing numerous popular icons such as the ruby slippers, the Yellow Brick Road and the Emerald City.

Paddy & Larry play the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion. They join Katt in the studio on the Mid Morning Mix just a week before the first curtain goes up. Get your tickets soon!
