Aiofe Salusky. becomes Dorothy on this small stage in Northwest Pennsylvania and has the audience eating out of her tiny basket for the three hour-is performance. It's a demanding role for anyone, but for a 14 year-old it is amazing that she is able to command the stage night after night the way she has.
In a few hours she will take the stage with the large cast for the rare "Before Applefest" Thursday night performance. The show will run Oct, 1, 2, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday Oct. 10 at 2 p.m. No matinee show this coming Sunday due to the Applefest car show that draws thousands of cars and people to Liberty Street.
And if you really want to experience cute beyond cute, check out the munchkins who truly own the part. And the Wicked Witch's cackle is something that will stand the hairs on your neck straight up. And if you don't want to give Ian Best (the cowardly lion) a hug after curtain call then you're like the Tin Man before he gets his heart. So if you you're looking for something to do this weekend or next, seeing this show is a no brainer.
Below are some more photos from last week's show you can follow this link for even more photos including a few from dress rehearsal.
