Carly Berg in The Wizard of OzWhile traveling to Thursday’s presentation of The Wizard of Oz, which features much-loved songs by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, I pondered whether the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s production would stick closely to the familiar images and characterizations from the equally loved 1939 film version. (As I prefer to see local theatre companies presenting unique versions of theatrical pieces, I hoped the Showboat would avoid copycat staging.) But once I settled into my seat, it took just a perusal of the program to know this wasn’t going to be my grandfather’s Oz, and a sense of excitement blossomed as I eagerly awaited the metaphorical curtain's opening.

Yet it's barely a musical. The production plays out as the titular girls' group makes its national television debut on the Spotlight on Music show – with the Showboat crowd serving as the “live studio audience” for a televised concert – and as there isn’t much dialogue, or much plot, The Taffetas is really more of a revue.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling BeeThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightfully entertaining musical comedy that I wouldn’t mind seeing over and over again, as Friday’s performance of director Tommy Iafrate’s production was funny, touching, and energetic, serving as an exceptional rendering of the musical’s charm, wit, humor, and high level of enjoyability.
