The Wizard of Oz dazzles at Stratford


The Muchkins of Munchkinland The Muchkins of Munchkinland Stratford Avenue School’s auditorium was transformed in to the magical land of Oz this winter when the Fifth grade class staged an enchanting production of the classic tale, The Wizard of Oz.

Under the direction of Stratford’s Music Director, Mrs. Meredith Lavin, six classes of fifth graders came together and performed the beloved story of Dorothy Gale and her journey from Kansas to Oz, and back again. The magic of Oz came alive through the excellent performances of the cast and crew, the beautiful custom scenery and intricate props on stage and throughout the school.

Two casts alternated over the course of two days and nights in February, and even a snow-churning N’oreaster couldn’t stop Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, Lion, Scarecrow, the Wicked Witch, the Wizard and all the residents of Kansas, Munchkinland and Oz from delivering vibrant renditions of classic songs such a ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, ‘We’re Off to see the Wizard’ and ‘Merry Old Land of Oz’. The stage production had the bonus of a Jitterbug scene, which delighted the audience with its levity and cheer.
