Wizard of Oz Sequel EMERALD CITY Set for 2014 Toronto Fringe Festival, Begins Today
In the 75th anniversary year of MGM's classic film version of The Wizard of Oz, Baby Gumm Productions is bringing a sort of sequel, Emerald City, to the 2014 Toronto Fringe Festival.
Follow Dorothy and her friends as they take a detour off the yellow brick road and find themselves in group therapy with Dr. Oz, Psychiatrist, dealing with life in the Emerald City one step at a time.
Conceived and directed by Darren Stewart-Jones, Emerald City is based on characters created by L. Frank Baum and features music from the American Songbook of the early 20th century.
Emerald City - a musical play, has an incredible cast of young talent. Dorothy will be portrayed by Christie Stewart, who was previously chosen as a Top 20 finalist for the role of Dorothy on Andrew Lloyd Webber's CBC television series Over the Rainbow. The show also features Matthew Fuller as Tin Man, Chris Vergara as Scarecrow, Dillan Chiblow as Lion and Rory Bray as Glinda.
Join Dorothy and her friends on their trip down the yellow brick road as they bring the Emerald City to life at Toronto Fringe 2014 from July 2 to 13. The show will be performed at the Tarragon Theatre Mainspace. Tickets to Emerald City are $12 in advance, $10 at the door and are avaiable at (416) 966-1062 x1 or online at fringetoronto.com.
