Community Theatre does The Wiz

Theatre Downtown, a community theatre in Orlando, is tackling "The Wiz" September 4 – October 3, 2009. Steve MacKinnon is directing, with choreography by Jonathan Guise. MacKinnon played piano for A Night With the Girls #2 in 2007 (which is coming back August 31, 2009, at 8pm at Orlando Shakes as a fundraise for the Orlando Improv Festival!)

But back to The Wiz.

Performances are Thursday, Friday at 8 PM. Sunday Matinees are September 13, 20 & 27. Tickets are $18.00/$15.00 Seniors & Students. Reservations suggested: 407-841-0083. 2113 N. Orange Av., Orlando 32804

I've never seen a show at Theatre Downtown. Maybe a reader can chime in here. Do they do good work? For $18, they better!
"Oz gets fun and funky: Dorothy’s adventures are set to music in a dazzling and lively mixture of rock, gospel and soul. A carnival of fun with soaring songs and driving rhythms guaranteed to radiate so much energy you will have a hard time staying in your seat!"
