The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Allison and I had the wonderful opportunity to see the El Dorado Musical Theater's performance of the Wizard of Oz. During the first 15 minutes of the show, Alli was on the verge of tears convinced that the wicked witch was going to shoot fire. I tried to explain that it was just a peformance and that it wasn't going to be real fire. Little did I know, she did shoot fire from what looked to be a small lighter, but Allison was ok and relieved after the scene. From then on she loved the performance.

Even though she didn't go with us, when we got home Kate demanded to watch "Dorothy" and has been singing Somewhere over the Rainbow ever since. I think the girls are hooked! It was a great time and we will certainly return for other perforamnces.

The cast came out to sign autographs after the show. Here is Alli posing with Glenda the Good Witch

Here we are waiting for Dororthy's autograph. She was Alli's favorite and gave an amazing performance. She is just 18 but I know she has a huge theatrical performance career ahead of her.
