Oz in the News 8.9.13

the-wonderful-remix-of-oz-postcard-u127The Wonderful Remix of OZ  On her cosmopolitan journey, Dorothy navigates much more than the city-that-never-sleeps on her quest to find the Wizard (Matt Giroveanu), the guy who must know the secret to “making it” here—or anywhere! From Eastside to West, she encounters rival witches toting shotguns and wood allergies (Amy Sanchez, Pamela Karp); a paranoid lioness in need of some serious Prozac (Lindsay Arber); an emotionally damaged tin man who still can’t commit (Alex Coehlo); and the starving artist, hippy-dippy, scarecrow type your mom prays you never bring back to the ranch (Jeff Foley).

Jacquelyn Piro Donovan, Mike Jackson, Lee MacDougall and More Join Danielle Wade in North American Wizard of Oz Tour  As previously announced, the cast will be headed by Danielle Wade (as Dorothy), who was chosen by the Canadian public through CBC TV’s reality show “Over The Rainbow.” Starring opposite Wade will be Canadian actor Cedric Smith as the Wizard, Mike Jackson (Chicago) as the Tin Man, Lee MacDougall (Mamma Mia! in Toronto and the U.S. tour) as the Lion, Jamie McKnight (The Producers in Toronto) as the Scarecrow, Robin Evan Willis (Shaw Festival) as Glinda and Jacquelyn Piro Donovan (Les Miz, Miss Saigon, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Closer Than Ever) as the Wicked Witch of the West.  Rounding out the ensemble are Larry Mannell, Charlotte Moore, Jordan Bell, John Edwards, Kelly Grainger, Julianne Hobby, Jason Huska, Zak Kearns, Ayrin Mackie, Anthony MacPherson, Stewart Adam McKensy, Julia McLellan, Briana Palmer, Kristen Pottle, Alana Randall, Adam Sergison, Andrew Taylor, Devon Tullock, Jesse Weafer, Ryan Wilson and Alyson Workman.

‘Supernatural’ to tackle ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in season 9  The fourth episode of Supernatural‘s ninth season entitled “Slumber Party,” will have flashbacks to the 1930s — 1935 specifically, according to executive producer Jeremy Carver. This episode will also introduce Dorothy, a young new hunter from a far away and supposedly fictional land. If you’re thinking that land is Oz, then you’re right. “You’re going to see that case as something really wonderful to do with The Wizard of Oz,” Carver teased. “It’s a really fun, relatively elaborate episode that we’re all really excited about!”
