A cast of over 50 talented youth is set to take the stage at Hylton Performing Arts Center on May 11 and 12 when ARTfactory Pied Piper Theatre presents the delightful adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s beloved classic, The Wizard of Oz.

When a tornado sweeps Dorothy Gale from her home in Kansas, she is transported to the magical land of Oz. In order to find her way home, Dorothy must follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City and the Wizard of Oz. Along the way, she makes new friends, Scarecrow, Lion, and Tin Man – but also braves many dangers, such as the Wicked Witch of the West.

Audiences can expect to hear some of the most well-known songs from the movie, which celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. Songs include “Over the Rainbow,” “Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead),” “If I Only Had a Brain/a Heart/the Nerve,” and “We’re Off to See the Wizard (Follow the Yellow Brick Road).”

Directed by Vincent Worthington, the cast includes Joy Williamson, Erin Rigby, JJ Calavas, Nathan Brooks, Parker Bowling, Mya Hostutler, Michael Klingue, Stephen Armstrong, Jackson Doll, Peter Mott, Adriana Beckwith, Shyla Biswas, Kennedy Calavas, Matthew Campos, Grayson Dove, Karsen Dittano, Bailey Dove, Izzy Githens, Logan Hicks, Neri Hilgart, Tristan Lamoureux, Deen Lateef, Iris Mikami, Susan Mills, AJ Morse, Mary Mott, Leila Pesature, Alan Sarang, Ani Sarang, Ryan Schultheis, Jacob Smith, Emilynn Tinker, Natalie Tinker, Beatrice Armstrong, Megan Berk, Kaitlyn Byrdy, Juliet Durham, Loren Park, Jalyn Turbeville, Nathan Castro, Theo Charlton, Eleanor Doane, Ysabella Nicastro, Imani Cobbs, Bowie Conser, Natalie Cortez, Olive Mikami, Gybson Conser, Sophia Leone, Aria Morse, Elliot Swink, Annie Talkington, Micheyla Tinker, and Betsy Woodward.
