The end of the school year is approaching, and schools are putting on their final productions.
Reitz Memorial High School chose a classic that delights young and old alike.
Let’s follow the yellow brick road…to Memorial.
Dorothy is a typical teen.
All she wants is to get away from her problems…and Kansas.
And thanks to a twister, she gets her wish.
But, trouble follows her.
After meeting outlandish characters in a strange land, Dorothy discovers that all she wants is to go home.
This story, written over a hundred years ago, is just as relevant to today’s teens as it was in 1900.
High Schoolers, all they can think about is just getting out of here, going to college, getting as far away as they can from where they came from. But it really teaches you, ‘there’s no place like home’.
And for these Seniors, it will be the last time you see them on a high school stage.
It’s weird to think that I’m in my last show, it’s bittersweet.
Follow the yellow brick road…to Memorial High School.
The show runs starting today through the weekend at 7pm, with a Sunday matinee at 2:30pm.
Ticket prices are $6 for students/seniors, and $8 for adults.
