The Minden High School One Act team attended the Ord Play Production Festival on November 9 to begin the play production competition season. The team will hold a public performance of their production “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” with restrictions on November 17 in the Minden High School Fine Arts Auditorium beginning at 7:00 p.m. The public performance will also be streamed on the school’s striv.tv site.
The whimsical production is a direct adaptation from the book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum. Dorothy finds herself in a magical world with munchkins, witches, winkies, citizens, soldiers, flying monkeys, a scarecrow, a tin man, a lion, a guardian, the great Oz, and magical flowers and trees. Of course, she has to find her way back to Kansas. The journey takes her through the field of poppies, into the presence of the great Oz, and finally back to her wonderful Aunt Em.
