Oz in the News 5.22.15

tn-2428847-tn-dpt-et-0522-oz-scr-01-jpg-20150521SCR’s Oz enters a whole new realm  “OZ 2.5,” set to open on the Julianne Argyros stage, features a brighter, bolder and customized backdrop for the audience. The children’s classic written by L. Frank Baum 115 years ago, is set in a video game world. Dee, whose screen name is Dorothy14, joins her friends Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man through each level on her way to defeat the Witch of the Western Realm. She wins the game but wants to return to her homeland of prairie, wild flowers and tall grass.  Unlike the original Dorothy, Trieschmann’s Dee is a 21st century girl, who finds life in rural Kansas dull and unexciting. Since she can’t find adventure on the farm, she turns to her favorite video game, OZ 2.0, much to her Aunt Em’s dismay. The tornado hits and rather than seeking shelter in the basement, Dee stays outside to retrieve her tablet. The tornado hits her and she wakes up finding herself inside the computer game.
