We all know the story of the Wizard of Oz; the story of a girl who gets lost in a fairy tale land, and is looking for a way home. North Eugene’s rendition of the play The Wizard of Oz will be the same story that your family has come to love but with a little extra life. “Everybody appreciates the story, it’s fun for the whole family.” says the director, Mr. Gorelick. The cast has included a new perspective, by making it seem like it’s happening around you. The large cast is a mix of all different types of people from around the the school.” It’s not about the acting, it’s about finding the reality in it.” says Chris Sparks. a freshman playing Glinda the Good Witch. The play’s opening night is Thursday, April  24th, and the show will play on May 3rd. The play will be performed at North Eugene High School, running from 7 to 9:30pm with some showings from 1 to 3:30, Admission is $6 per person. A piece of advice from the cast; if something comes flying at you, you better duck.
