Travel to the land of Oz – tonight & tomorrow!
There’s no place like home, but after watching the Hamilton Gibson summer camp performance of The Wizard of Oz, you will certainly be glad you went! Performances are on Thursday June 21 or Friday June 22 at 7:30 pm at the Clark Wood Elementary School auditorium in Elkland. Admission is “pay what you can.” Reservations are not necessary.
Seventy-seven kids in grades 3-9, and 10 counselors have put this together in just 8 days. Typically Hamilton Gibson offers three separate camps in Blossburg, Elkland, and Wellsboro. This year they tried something new, combining them into one camp in order to perform a big production. The campers learn about the fun that goes along with the theater; acting and singing, team building, and meeting new people throughout Tioga County, and beyond.
This year’s cast includes….
Maddy Millard as Dorothy
Amy Feaster as Aunt Em
Brett Meise as Uncle Henry
Justin Gordon as Hunk/ Scarecrow
Kreslynn Kilmer as Zeke/ Lion
Evan Zinck as Hickory/ Tin Man
Lydia Howe as Miss Gulch/ Wicked Witch of the West
Nate Gehman as Toto
Scott Zimmerman as Professor Marvel/ Wizard
Hannah Butkiewicz as Glinda
Munchkins/Crows//Winged Monkeys and Winkie Guards:
On be half of Hamilton Gibson and campers, we’d like to thank the Deerfield Charitable Trust for the generous grant, Northern Tioga School District, Tricia Hall for coordinating and implementing transportation, and many others who contribute in so many ways.
