ARAPAHOE, NC (WNCT) — The cast and crew of The Wizard of Oz are busy designing and building sets, creating costumes and rehearsing to finally hit the stage.
According to Professor and Director of Theater Arts, Jill Williamson, due to the pandemic delays, the group is excited to get production started.
“It’s a wonderful group of students who’ve waited a very long time to take the stage,” Williamson said. “It’s a pleasure to see this all fall into place.”
Arapahoe Charter School’s popular theater arts program represents a great diversity of talent every year and this year will be no different.
“There’s so much more to acting than acting,” Williamson said. “Those on stage are obviously the most visible, but those behind the scenes are certainly just as important.”
Arapahoe Charter School’s Theater Arts Program, in conjunction with The Old Theatre, will present The Wizard of Oz on Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 30 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, May 1 at 2 p.m. at the Old Theater, 609 Broad St. in Oriental. Tickets are available at Nautical Wheelers, Oriental and The Old Theater Box Office one hour before performances. Ticket prices are adults: $15 and children 12 and under: $5.
All proceeds support the Theater Arts Program at Arapahoe Charter School.
