Carousel Dinner Theatre Oz Blog

Sean Cercone, the artistic director at Carousel Dinner Theatre, has started a blog that is focusing on their upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz. You can follow the process from casting of actors, to design of costumes and sets, plus all the special effects challenges. Lots of great pictures too!

The latest entry features a video of Sean trying out a pair of Kangaroo jump boots for the monkeys. If you don't know what a Kangaroo jump boot is, then you really owe it to yourself to check them out. Sean says they are quite pricey, but preferable to working in stilts.

The production opens August 27 and runs through November 1st. Info and tickets are available online.
