High School Musical - The Wiz - I played the tornado in The Wiz.

First ever all white production of the Wiz

My high school production of The Wiz.

If you watch Glee you may have caught the episode a little bit back where Kristin Chenoweth proclaimed that she was going to mount the first ever all white production of the Wiz…

Well, move over Kristen because we did it first!

While I’m sure it was neither the first nor last time the musical was done with a primarily white cast, The Wiz was my junior year high school spring musical. For anyone who says “An all white version would just be the Wizard of Oz,” you are completely mistaken. While much of the storyline is the same, the music is way different…and there is a dancing tornado…just perfect for the young girl who couldn’t sing so would always get cast in the dancing role of musicals…

I’m determined to get my entire life in photos catalogued here. And after hearing that line I knew just where to start. So here’s my very own high school musical production of The Wiz…

    I love this show so much, I directed TWO all-white productions of “The Wiz”! Such a perfect musical!
