VIDEO: Get A First Look At THE WIZARD OF OZ At Family Performing Arts Center
The Wizard of Oz is now playing at the Family Performing Arts Center in residence at Bridgewater State University. The cast is helmed by FPAC crowd favorites, Jim Quinn (FPAC's The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Seussical) as the Cowardly Lion and Katia Greene (FPAC's Once Upon a Mattress, Beauty & the Beast, Seussical) as The Wicked Witch of the West.
Many of the newcomers making their FPAC debuts in Oz include Christopher Starr as the Scarecrow, Steven Sawan (Wilbury Theatre Group's Coming Attraction) as the Tinman, Haley McKenney (Company Theatre's Sister Act) as Glinda the Good Witch, Jeremiah O'Sullivan (Priscilla Beach Theatre's The Producers) as Uncle Henry, and Nehha Groves, who will defy gender norms in a modern twist on the titular role of Oz himself.
Zoe Stewart** (North Shore Music Theatre's Billy Elliott, Wheelock Family Theatre's Akeelah & the Bee) will take on the iconic role of Dorothy Gale. Rounding out the ensemble are eight versatile and skilled performers, including FPAC veterans Hannah Lizotte (FPAC's The Little Mermaid, Shrek) and Becca Collins (FPAC's The Little Mermaid, Shrek), alongside Jacob Comeau (Company Theatre's Les Miserables), Caitlin Crane-Moscowitz** (Barrington Stage Company's Ragtime), Stephen Donnelly, Alexander Holden* (Lyric Stage Company's Pacific Overtures), Lily Jeswald, and Maya Simone.
