Note from Director

Wow! That is all I can say! Wow!

What an amazing experience so far we have had with this show and our casting and rehearsals. From an almost unheard 121 people auditioning to one of the largest casts (if not the largest outside of Youth Theatre) to hit the BCT stage, the Wizard is making Barrow history. I am really thrilled over the response of the cast to jump right in and learn lines, blocking and choreography. The response to the addition of a second matinee has been enthusiastic-and why not. Any additional chance to show off the talents, skills, and personalities that this cast possesses is welcomed.

And we have an amazing production management team. From "Lux" on Music and "Jacks" on Choregraphy, to our assistant "Stump" and producters, Ed on the set, and many more....we are well on our way to a fantastic end to Civic's 50th Anniversary year.

Last night, Jane Judson, one of Civic's founding members, sat in on rehearsal. As I always do when I see Jane, I took the opportunity to ask what she thought. She was delighted to see so many people interested in carrying on the Civic tradition of community theatre and can't wait to see the show.

And we still have a few tricks up our sleeves.....

Kudos to all in the cast and crew. You are what is making this show!
