The OT Committee entertained everyone with a specially written version of the Wizard of Oz in which everyone bought bricks for the yellow brick road in order to get Dorothy home to her Ideal Org. The story was great and the OT Committee raised over $160,000 towards the new building. This was a once in a lifetime presentation and I doubt anyone will ever see the OT Committee in this way again.
The cast consisted, in order of appearance, of Melanie Wertin as Dorothy, Chris Wertin as the Cowardly Lion, Tom Drake as the Tin Man, Doug Arjes as the Scarecrow, Bryan Shackelford as Glinda, the Good Witch, Brandy Shackelford as Enda the Road of the Missouri Department of Transportation, Terri Marx as the Wicked Witch of the West, Mary Huss as the Brickseller and Bob Marx as the All-Powerful Wizard of Oz. And rounding out the accolades, recognition should also go to Azeneth Gonzalez who sang "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" at the start of the show and to JoAnne Beachy who was writer/director.
They had us all in stitches, laughing so hard and everyone was rushing to purchase yellow bricks to complete construction of the yellow brick road.
If you missed it, I should be able to get some photos up in the coming week and, other than that, you'll have to imagine it from my description. Maybe next time you'll come when we tell you it's a night of superb entertainment!
Everyone had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to the next time the OT Committee hosts an event.
