Congratulations to everyone who participated in “The Wiz”, a production by Playcrafters Theatre Company! Three of the young stars have continued to share their talents by performing in Playcrafters’ production of “Born Yesterday” by Garson Kanin. Our Scarecrow, Kimberly B., Tinman, Josiah M., and Glinda, Ava R. were part of a fine cast of experienced actors performing a quality play by a noted playwright. Showing his skills, Cameron T. was trained on and operated the lighting board for “The Wiz” and assisted with the lights for the production of “Born Yesterday.” We are extremely impressed by each and every one of “The Wiz” cast members!! A standing ovation for all!!
