Bay High presents 'The Wizard of Oz' musical March 17-20

Bay High will present the musical, "The Wizard of Oz," Thursday through Sunday, March 17-20, at Bay High Auditorium. Cast members pictured above, from left, are: front row - Stephanie Jordan (Dorothy), Kerry O'Brien (Glinda), James McDermott (guard); back row - Brad Beverly (Oz), CJ Hyland (Scarecrow), Matthew Szekely (Lion) and Phil Lally (Tin Man).

Bay High students present the wonderful "Wizard of Oz" musical Thursday through Saturday, March 17-19, at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, March 20, at 2 p.m. at Bay High Auditorium.

Audiences will join Dorothy (Stephanie Jordon) after she finds herself in the Land of Oz following a Kansas twister. She and her new friends, the Scarecrow (CJ Hyland), the Tin Man (Phil Lally) and the Cowardly Lion (Matthew Szekely), enlist the help of Glinda the Good Witch (Kerry O’Brien) to get Dorothy back home. They appeal to the Wizard himself (Brad Beverly), who demands the broomstick of the Wicked Witch of the West (Salem Stacey) in exchange for his help.

From the dainty presentation of the Lullaby League, to the brusque welcome of the Lollipop Guild, to the scary Monkeys controlled by the Wicked Witch, the talented cast performs the roles and songs that everyone knows from this much-loved musical. It is sure to captivate every age group.

Reserved seat tickets are $12 each, and General Admission seats are $6 each. Tickets will be sold March 7-10 and March 14-18, from 11a.m.-1 p.m., in the Bay High School cafeteria. Tickets can also be purchased at the box office beginning one hour before curtain time at each performance. Contact Kristen Srsen Kenney at 440-617-7447 with questions.
