Blake Children’s Theatre Brings Wizard of Oz to Tikvat Israel

On February 18 at 11 am, Blake High School Children’s Theatre (BCT) will bring the play “The Wizard of Oz” to Tikvat Israel.

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow  that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion   who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West  to earn his help.

Last year, BCT, led by congregant Mary Wagner, brought “The Odyssey of Jeremy Jack” to Tikvat Israel. Preschoolers from the ECC, elementary school-aged children, and their parents and grandparents enjoyed the production. This year’s play is recommended for same audience. Like last year, donations are greatly accepted at the door and proceeds will benefit BCT and Tikvat Israel youth programs.
