An 'Oz' mash-up at Broward College

Bubble_wizard Jett Canary, an associate professor of theater at Broward College, has worked with his students to create All About Oz, described as "a performance art piece that pays tribute to the musicals The Wizard of Oz, The Wiz and Wicked," as well as celebrating the 70th anniversary of the famous movie version of L. Frank Baum's story.

The show, recommended for theatergoers 18 and older, is set in a college philosophy classroom where an annoyed sub turns his inattentive students into characters from Oz.  Songs, scenes, monologues and original material follow.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday at the college's Fine Arts Theatre, 3501 Davie Rd., Bldg. 6, Second Floor, in Davie.  Tickets are $4 for students, faculty, staff and seniors, $8 for everyone else.  Call 954-201-6884 for info.
