The Wizard of Oz! My favorite movie and now…my favorite young stage production! 

Today, EJS performed in The Wizard of Oz.  She’s in a theater group called Show Stoppers. Last year, she was in Beauty and the Beast, she was a few different characters. This year she was Elmira Gulch in Act I, wow! Elmira Gulch, if you’re not in the know, is the mean woman who becomes the Wicked Witch of the West. 

In the rest of the show, she was a jitterbug, and munchkin, a crow and part of the Queens Guard, versatile! There was singing and dancing and they were all great, but you know,  she’s my niece so of course, she was the star! 

She asked me to do her hair in a sideways French braid. First time…let’s give it a shot!  I did the braid, she approved and they pinned it up, looked great! Whew! 

It was a fun production, minimal sets…we had a farm, a yellow brick road, a curtain for the Great and Powerful Oz, colored lighting, music, singing, costumes…what more do you need? 

It really was great and EJS knew her lines, she was on point, she danced and sang and enjoyed herself and had an entourage of about 25 people! Aside from my sister, b-i-l, MGS, dad and LaLa, J&AS, B&SS she had three friends on their own, then J&EK with their kids,  S&P, S&LR and their kids S&E, RG and her daughter A. What a crowd and what a lucky girl! Can you image what her Broadway debut will look like! 

Congrats to the entire cast and easy to go EJS! I’m so proud of you!
