Wizard of Oz

Cast of Chicago

Honesdale High School proudly presents “Wizard of Oz!”

In this classic musical fantasy, Honesdale High School's Danielle Gager stars as Dorothy Gale, a young Kansas farm girl who dreams of a land “somewhere over the rainbow.” Dorothy’s dream comes true when she, her dog Toto, and her family’s house are transported by a tornado to a bright and magical world unlike anything she has seen before. Unfortunately, she makes a mortal enemy of a wicked witch, played by Ruth Ihlefeldt, when the house falls on the hag’s sister. Now, befriended by Calvin Rosar as scarecrow without a brain, Justin Schumacher a tin man with no heart, and Blaine Bolella a cowardly lion–and protected by a pair of enchanted ruby slippers–Dorothy sets off along a yellow brick road for the Emerald City to beseech the all-powerful Wizard of Oz, played by Daniel Peoples for his help to return home with the help of Glinda the Good Witch played by Lily Taraschuk.
