Washington School will present “The Wizard of West Bizarre” an original production, written by Christopher Gaeta. The show follows the efforts of Dorothy Boyd and her best pal Toto as they try to find their way back over the rainbow to familiar surroundings in Westfield, NJ and Washington School.
Tired of the same old routine at Washington and thinking that she would prefer a different school for 5th grade, Dorothy and Toto are transported away to the Merry old land of West Bizarre and West IZ Elementary school, the home of the Candy Crushers.
During their journey, Dorothy and Toto experience a very different type of school and make several new friends including the wonderful and always altruistic Wizard of West Bizarre. The Wizard is determined to help Dorothy and Toto make their back home. But will they find their way back over the rainbow? Come find out.
Not only is the show written by a parent, it’s also directed, choreographed, produced and performed solely by parents, with the exception of the ever-popular teachers’ dance number.
This family-friendly musical is the PTO’s largest fundraiser each year, raising funds for resources in the classrooms, teacher grants, school enhancements and additional programs to enrich the educational environment for the school’s 300+ students.
Performances are Friday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 25, at 1:30 and 7 p.m. at Roosevelt Intermediate School, 301 Clark St. in Westfield. Tickets are $14.50 and can be purchased from https://wes.booktix.com/.
