In November 1905, The Colonial Theater in Peekskill presented a play production
of “The Wizard of Oz”. Lyman Frank Baum, writer of the children’s novel,
attended Peekskill Military Academy for two years, which brings a special connection for this upcoming Peekskill performance and yellow bricks do still exist here.
The show is produced by Antonia Arts, Inc., a nonprofit organization based out of
Peekskill, NY, and directed by Broadway Professional Melodie Wolford, notorious for her
performance in 42nd Street. The production will consist of actors and actresses from
ages seven to sixty including Gabrielle Sansone, playing “Dorothy”, a 15-year-old who has toured internationally as an actress and is a rising star on her way to Broadway. This is
Gabrielle’s third debut at The Paramount and many say she has the voice of a young Judy Garland. Actor and writer, Stephen Velichko, will be playing “Tin Man”, and actor Doug Bagnasco as “Lion." We are pleased to add to our cast Jim Gerthas the Wizard and Christine Gavin as Glinda.
This show is dedicated to Jimmy Mack. In his honor Antonia Arts will be taking donations for the Jimmy Mack Scholarship Foundation for the Creative and Performing Arts.
