Photo Flash: First Look at Repertory PhilippinesÂ’ THE WIZARD OF OZ, Opening Today, 8/18 Repertory Philippines (Rep) released its publicity photos for "The Wizard of Oz," music by Jean Bargy and Jim Eiler, and book and lyrics by Eiler, which runs at Onstage Theatre at Greenbelt One, Ayala Malls, Makati City for five months, from today, August 18 to Sunday, December 16. 

"The Wizard of Oz" tells the story of a young Kansas farm girl, Dorothy, who gets lost in the magical land of Oz. Along the way, she meets a scarecrow, a tin man, and a cowardly lion that will help her on her journey.

In a press statement, Joy Virata, artistic director for Rep's children's theater and the show's director said: "The Wizard of Oz" is a fantasy - it's magical and dreamlike. I want to excite that fantasy by using movement that's outside of everyday life. The musical introduces fresh, yet tasteful, new dance moves into the show. The idea is to keep the music straight, but make the choreography showier, flashier, and bigger to the eye. There's freestyle street dance vibe. We've got the Scarecrow doing waving and bugaloo, and the Tin Man popping, breaking, and locking in some of the dance scenes.

Cast includes Cara Barredo and Giannina Ocampo as Dorothy; Liesl Batucan and Kyla Rivera as Glinda the Good Witch; Pinky Marquez and Rem Zamora as the Wicked Witch of the West; James Stacey and Arnel Carrion as the Scarecrow; Hans Eckstein and Nic Campos as the Tin Man; Oliver Usison and Mano Domingo as the Lion; Nathalie Everett and Ayam Barredo Eckstein as Aunt Em; Zamora and Chino Veguillas as Uncle Henry; Bobby Superales, Jim Ferrer, Deo dela Cruz, and Clark dela Riva as the acrobats and monkeys.
