Todos Santos February 2011

By Vickie Butler

Plan to spend a magical evening under the stars enjoying The Wizard of Oz with a Todos Twist held on February 4,5,11,12 and 18! Tickets can be purchased at Tecolote Bookstore, La Bodega de Todos Santos or Luna Azul. For information, contact [email protected]

The Wizard Visits Todos Santos! Currently, an additional bit of magic is being sprinkled over the Pueblo Magico of TodosSantos as 40+ community members, ranging in age from nine to seventy-nine, busilyprepare for the upcoming February production of The Wizard of Oz with a TodosTwist! Acting, dancing, singing, painting, building, sewing, molding and laughing—together and individually—these dedicated artists are contributing their vast talents anddiverse experiences for the musical to be held on the new Luna Azul Stage. Surroundedby elegant arches and beautiful decades-old palms, Luna Azul is the long-time dream of director/producer/actress Isabel Smyth and contractor/musician, Raul Cavazos. “We’vealways wanted to create a venue for actors and musicians, and now with Luna Azul,Todos Santos will have a performing arts component for its growing reputation as anartist colony,” enthused Smyth.
The Wizard of Oz with a Todos Twist promises to be a fun-filled fantasy with manyfamiliar scenes from the original 1939 movie including Munchkinland, Emerald City andthe Witch’s Castle; however, there is one notable exception: Dorothy, played by veteranactress Roxanne Rosenblatt, is a fifty-nine year old expat who has recently moved toTodos Santos in an RV! Joining her in the on-stage adventures are Serendipity B & Bowner Sharon Morris as Lion, Photographer Vic Kirby as Tin Man, Director Isabel Smythas Scarecrow and former radio/TV announcer Peter Jackson as The Wizard. With theinspired casting of Anita Harris as the Good Witch and Donna Schultz as the WickedWitch, The Wizard of Oz with a Todos Twist definitely will be comedic, full ofsurprises and maybe even a little scary! The cast is rounded off with Silvio Garcia Baumplaying Todos the Dog and members of the energetic, colorful chorus enacting the rolesof Munchkins, Town Folk, Winkies and Winged Monkeys.
