Our Gang Players presents "The Wizard of Oz"

originally published: 12/31/2018

Our Gang Players presents "The Wizard of Oz"(BARNEGAT, NJ) -- Our Gang Players presents The Wizard of Oz - the first production of their 2019 season in the Bengal Auditorium at the Barnegat High School.  Production dates are Friday and Saturday, April 26 & 27 at 7:00pm & Sunday, April 28 at 2:00pm. The theatre group's younger performers 5 - 15 years of age tell the classic tale of Dorothy Gale from Kansas who gets whisked away in a tornado to a magical land "Somewhere over the Rainbow".   

There Dorothy meets a good witch (Glinda) and a bad witch (Wicked Witch of the West) in a place called Munchkinland.  Glinda sets her on a path to "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" to the Emerald City to seek the help of the "great & powerful" Wizard of Oz to get her back home. Along her journey she meets some very unlikely characters; a Scarecrow, a Tinman & a Cowardly Lion all of whome are missing something they seek desparately.  While traveling to Oz together they encounter some adventures which bring them closer together as friends & help them realize that what they have been searching for has been inside them all along.  The most important lesson of all is that no matter how far Dorothy traveled from Kansas (or didn't as it appears to have been a dream), is that "There's No Place Like Home"!

Tickets are $20 for Adults, $15 for Seniors/Students & $12 for Children 12 & Under.  Purchase your tickets online or by calling (609) 597-0553.
