WIZARD OF OZ KUDOS
It feels impossible to adequately describe just how wonderful it was to attend Telstar's performance of “The Wizard of Oz.” To say the production was delightfully entertaining just doesn't cut it, so I'll add fabulous, awesome, brilliant, and marvelous – purely marvelous!
What a joy it was to witness such admirable acting, excellent singing, fine musicianship, colorful and creative sets and props, first-class costuming, and to see SO MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED! Besides featuring many high school students AND some teachers, I was happily surprised to see so many others of various ages gracing the stage – from early elementary through middle school, to those in their fifth decade who'd also been part of Telstar's “Wizard of Oz” production back in 1970! Besides the performers, there were of course also many amazing, talented, diligent “behind the scenes” supporters who put in extensive time and effort “creating” all that was needed to pull off such an outstanding production – the ultimate “community” effort!
I get very emotional when experiencing events fueled with heart and soul, and this was certainly one of those times. A smile beamed across my face and tears of joy welled in my eyes as I watched and I clapped and I cheered and clapped some more, deeply moved by the tremendous dedication put forth by countless people in presenting such an amazing production. Thank you all for all you did!!!
