Good morning. Oh my, I'm bubbling all over with lots of good things to say about the Musical Wizard Of Oz. I went to Friday evening and yesterday's afternoon performances. Oh my, it was just fantabulous!! All the players were just wonderful, and of course, our "Dorothy" was awesome.
We were allowed to take photos so I took as many as I could. (with my phone) I didn't do too bad considering there was a wicked tall guy sitting right in front of me. (Friday evening) He was video taping and kept moving and getting in my view. Yesterday, I got there so early that I was the fourth person in line to get in. This time, we got to sit in the front row.
I won't bore you with a lot of "grandma brag talk", but I do have a few photos to share. It took me over an hour to go through the photos and pick out just a few to post here. First I'll start with a photo of Dorothy's precious Toto. Now tell me honestly, isn't she just the cutest little dog??
Miss Gulch, the wicked neighbor wants to take Toto away from Dorothy, so Dorothy and Toto run away. Here, they met up with Professor Marvel who is charming our Dorothy with his magic ball.
Dorothy helps the Straw Man down off the pole he is stuck on. Notice the crows nearby laughing at poor Straw Man.
Next, they meet the Tin Man who needs to be oiled before he can stand up and walk. Together, they're "off to see the wizard."
In the forest, our travelers meet up with the Cowardly Lion. (Note the tall heads in front of me? Some days it just doesn't pay to be short!) The Lion wants some courage. Tin Man wants a heart. Straw Man wants a brain, and Dorothy wants to go home to Kansas.
They are all nervous waiting to see if the Wizard will see them. Oh Poor Lion! Something has squeezed his tail. Silly Lion, you are squeezing your own tail!!
Oh you mean Wizard! You've scared poor Lion! Are you alright Lion?
I got a couple videos (one at each performance that I attended) of Jazzy singing "Over The Rainbow". However, after spending more than two hours last evening trying to upload one of them to You Tube so that I could share it, I was not able to accomplish this simple task. I got as far as uploading the video, but then it just said "pending" for the rest of the night. I finally cancelled it. This afternoon, I'll see if Deanne can talk me through it.
Well, other than snow Friday night and all day yesterday, that's all my news for this morning. I'm getting ready to go shopping soon. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a super nice day.
Hugs, Edna B.
