Porch Productions presents The Wiz Experience

Friday, August 10, 2018
Directed by Qwa Dorsey, with Kenisha Monroe as Creative Director and Chemise Ferguson as Choreographer, this eagerly anticipated adaptation of a classic story will feature some amazingly talented youth! This high energy, high flying spectacle is sure to amaze audiences of all ages. Breaking down the fourth wall, the cast will march down the yellow bricks to meet The Wiz!

Dorothy, a kindergarten teacher born, raised, and still working in Harlem, is celebrating Thanksgiving with her extended family, but she doesn't seem to be thankful for much in life. She lives a self-imposed sheltered life; she is shy and unfulfilled. Things change for her when she is caught in a snowstorm while chasing after her dog, Toto. They are transported to the mysterious Land of Oz, where she is informed that the only possible way to find her way back home is through the assistance of the powerful wizard in the Emerald City. As she goes searching for him, she befriends some creatures who are facing problems in life just like her. In their quest to find and get help from the wizard, they also face Evillene, the equally evil sister of Evermean, the wicked witch whom Dorothy inadvertently killed when she arrived in Oz, and who may be their biggest obstacle in achieving their goal.
