Off to See the Wizard

MTG's costume sketches

Winter’s still keeping everyone shut in, so everyone needs an excuse to get out. Of course, that takes a lot of prep work, with all the coats, hats, boots, and what have you. What’s a sure thing to lighten the mood? The Wizard of Oz, of course, and The Menomonie Theater Guild is conveniently putting it on. It’s the classic tale of Dorothy Gale, who after being carried away by a tornado, house and all, lands in a magical land, meeting up with kindly scarecrows, cowardly lions, good (and bad) witches, and a host of other fantastic beings and places. Jeannette Paules directs this production that’s fun for the whole family, and runs from Feb. 25 to March 7.
