Congratulations to the cast, crew, volunteers and directors of The Wizard of Oz!

In a tremendous show of theatrical talent, the students of Eastern Christian skillfully acted their way through Kansas, over the rainbow, and back again. Delighted audiences packed the Eastern Christian High School auditorium to take in EC’s interpretation of the classic L. Frank Baum story. They did not leave disappointed.

EC students of all ages got involved in this production with elementary students performing as “Munchkins,” and 3rd grader Olivia playing the “Mini Witch” when the Wicked Witch of the West infamously “Shrinks.” Crowd favorites and leads Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion as well as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch performed incredibly well. Their commitment and talent to these roles really drove the play. All of the players performed with excellence and the end result showed.

Thank you to EC Theater family for such an amazing performance. Thanks to Jane Okma for her vision and direction. Thanks to Kristin Pszwaro for Choreography. Thanks to Justin Van Dyke and Ryan Dykstra for audio/visual expertise. Thanks to Suzanne Kraai for directing music. Thanks to Mr. Flim for conducting the orchestra to an amazing soundtrack. Thanks to Jesse Wright for a beautiful set. And as always, thanks to the EC community and friends for your support of our school and program.
