Oz in the News 11.16.12

Disney’s Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival to have Oz theme  “Guests can follow in the footsteps of Oz The Great and Powerful by playing carnival games in a circus-themed area. Here red-and-white tents will offer all kinds of midway games, plus fun photo opportunities,” said the Disney Parks Blog. The Land of Oz play area will include play equipment adorned with flowers and settings and props similar to what’s seen in the movie. The 2013 festival at Epcot returns March 6 and is included as part of an Epcot admission.

Wizard of Oz Adult Pantomime  Darren King’s re-scripting of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ which is produced by Sue Clarence, starts with the beautiful ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ exquisitely sung by Dorothy, played by Donnagh Roberts who is busting very provocatively out of her red glitter brassiere. Within a very short time the cast of familial characters has assembled. We meet Thomie Holtzhausen as the brainless Scarecrow and car-guard, Marc Kay as the poured-into-his-costume Tin Man and Wentie’s fisherman and Jacobus Van Heerden as the delicately prancing scaredy-cat cheerleading Lion.  Of course they all want to join Dotty, the teenage virgin from Umkomaas, as she flees South Africa to seek out the Wizard of Oz for a visa to enter Australia.
