Summer Reading Program: The Wizard of Oz!

It was an exciting night at the Gordon Nash as The Hampstead Stage Company came to help us celebrate the end of this year's Summer Reading Program. We watched as just two actors presented the play The Wizard of Oz.* They were great! Some of us got to help by being Munchkins and Flying Monkeys. 
Here's one of the Munchkins…
and here are more of the Munchkins!
Dorothy and the Scarecrow, who wanted a brain.
Dorothy meets the Tin Man, who needs a heart.
The Cowardly Lion, who is afraid of everything - even mice!
The Cowardly Lion, trying to be brave enough to meet the Wizard.
Dorothy, getting instructions from the Wizard of Oz!
The Witch, who really wants Dorothy's shoes!
The Flying Monkeys!
Dorothy finally meets the Wizard of Oz - and you know the rest of the story!

After the show, the actors answered all our questions. Then we each made our own sundaes, with ice cream courtesy of The New Hampton School.

What a fun way to conclude our Summer Reading Program!  Thanks to all who attended!
