Wizard of Oz Rehearsal Photos

Mohawk Middle School Music Director Gina Glover shared a few Wizard of Oz rehearsal photos.

Professor Marvel (senior Robbie Buoniconti) uses his crystal ball to convince runaway Dorothy Gale (senior Ashley Robertson) to return to her Aunt Em's and Uncle Henry's farm. Toto watches from Dorothy's lap.

Dorothy, Toto, and Glinda, the Good Witch of the North (sophomore Sarah Malone), shrink back as the Wicked Witch of the West (junior Laura Purington) vows to avenge her sister's death and claim her magic ruby slippers from Dorothy.

Glinda rescues the travelers from the field of poisonous poppies. Back row:  Glinda, Cowardly Lion (junior Samantha Harris-Fried), Wicked Witch of the West. Front row:  Tin Man (sophomore Zach Arfa), Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow (sophomore Amar Abbatiello).

The Wicked Witch of the West threatens the travelers one more time before they are granted an audience with the great and powerful Wizard of Oz.
