Next month, the Jamestown Community Theatre will put on six performances of the classic “The Wizard of Oz”, which will coincide with the Jamestown Community Theatre’s 21st Anniversary.
Our very own Greer Beecroft is actively involved in the production as the set designer. She has been busily organizing volunteers, sketching designs, painting sets and implementing her ideas for the various scenes. Also involved is Island Realty’s co-owner, Carol Hopkins as choreographer. A little tidbit from Carol is that there is a dance titled “Jitterbugs,” that will appear in the play, but was cut in the original movie. It was the Witch of the West’s evil plan to get the main characters to dance until they were exhausted so she could get them to her castle. Carol says, “This is for everyone who thinks they’ve seen everything there is to see. It’s my favorite dance in the play!”
