An Oz Story: This whimsical new musical was adapted from L. Frank Baum’s original book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Portsmouth High School student Josh Goldberg, age 15, along with fellow students Ella McGrail and Corrie Owens-Beauchesne. Directed by Meghann Beauchamp, this delightful production is suitable for all ages and will introduce a whole new generation to Baum’s classic tales.
Cast members include Cayden & Jemma Glenn Wixson of Kittery, Elise Gillis of Newmarket, Daelen Kenney and Isabel Flemming of Hampton Falls, Liev Manck of Nottingham, Henry Minicucci of East Kingston, Alexia Montesano of Barrington, Elizabeth Nee of Rye, Isabel Smith of Stratham, along with Josh & Rachel Goldberg, Amelie Logue, Corrie Owens-Beauchesne, Colleen Spear and Abi Wool, all of Portsmouth. Ms. Beauchamp is assisted by Mary Langley, Kelsey Gallagher and Van Wile.
Along with pre-professional theatrical training, NHTP’s Youth Repertory Company gives teens the opportunity to participate in productions based in classical literature. Although everyone knows the famous film, many young folks today are unfamiliar with the original 14 fantasy novels about the mysterious land of Oz. As one of L. Frank Baum’s plucky characters says, “Never give up – no one knows what’s going to happen next!”
