Nearly 50 Highland Lakes area residents are hard at work at Hill Country Community Theatre these days rehearsing for HCCT's 2011 summer musical The Wizard of Oz, which is set to be performed at the theatre July 14-24.
Three veterans of the HCCT stage are playing three of the lead male roles, with Anson Hahn as Scarecrow, Richard Fernandes as Tin Woodman, and Mark Fernandez as Cowardly Lion. The role of Dorothy is being shared in alternating performances by Alyssa Anderson and Abigail Nunnelly and playing the Wizard of Oz is Guy Kemp. The Wicked Witch of the West is being played by Melissa Jamar, with Faith Westerman as The Good Witch, Sorceress of the North; Sally Stemac as Visiting Witch No. 1; and Megan Goodman as Visiting Witch No. 2.
Based on the book by Frank Baum and adapted by Frank Gabrielson from the music and lyrics of the MGM motion picture score, the much loved musical will be the final production of HCCT's 25th Anniversary Season.
