Meet the Artist Saturdays

The Wonderful Wizard of Odd

In The Wonderful Wizard of Odd, six clowns perform scenes from the 1939 classic film The Wizard of Oz with a 21st- century update. Through silliness, song, and utter confusion, the clowns discover what it means to be a performer, clown, and human being in 2013. By throwing back the curtain, they reveal the truth about the wizard and this classic tale that rings true today.
