Mary Beth Riewerts' Glinda and the Munchkin actors in The Wizard of OzAs enjoyable as Countryside Community Theatre’s The Wizard of Oz is, the most thrilling part is this: The witches fly. While L. Frank Baum's familiar story of the Kansas girl who’s blown to the land of Oz by a tornado has its fill of magic, Countryside adds some magic of its own by making its witches (and a flying monkey) airborne. It's a special touch to a show that, during Friday’s opening-night performance, proved to be a gratifying evening's diversion – if a long one, running three hours from beginning to end.

Rachelle Walljasper (left) and Annie's orphan ensembleOn Saturday night, I had the distinct pleasure of taking two very special young ladies - eleven-year-old Hannah and six-year-old Madison - to the theatre, since Countryside Community Theatre's Annie seemed the perfect choice to foster their love for live performance. And love it they did, calling the production "awesome" and "really good." As for me, I... didn't exactly love it, but liked it well enough.

St. Ambrose University’s "Urinetown": So Funny I Almost...

Since St. Ambrose University’s production of Urinetown at the Galvin Fine Arts Center has already closed, there’s probably not much point in a review. So consider this a thank-you note instead. I had more fun at the school’s production of this 2001 musical comedy than I have at nearly any other entertainment I’ve been to over the past few months. The show was terrifically staged and, almost across the board, vibrantly performed, but most inspiring of all, the audience was truly alive to it; Urinetown smashes the understood conventions of musical theatre to smithereens, and the Friday night crowd appeared positively delighted that it did. The show was a risk, and one that paid off big time.

One of the most difficult challenges directors face when working with a classic – particularly one such as The Wizard of Oz – is maintaining their vision while honoring the cherished memories every audience member holds. Georgia Jecklin, the director of Countryside Community Theatre’s production of The Wizard of Oz, accomplished this difficult challenge in a delightfully creative way.
