Viewers to be blown back to ‘Oz’

The Nevada County Performing Arts Guild presents its fall musical, “The Lost Princess of Oz,” on the first two weekends of this month.

The script has been creatively adapted from L. Frank Baum’s “The Marvelous Land of Oz” and written for the stage by Mila Johansen, a direct descendant of the famous Grimm Brothers.

Baum wrote a total of 14 Oz books, creating more than 850 characters. “The Marvelous Land of Oz” was the second in the series, and it includes not only the Oz characters we all know, but also a boy, Tip, and a girl, Ozma.

The musical will be performed at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley at 7 p.m. Nov. 2. This show is a special preview performance, with all tickets $5

Other shows are at 7 p.m. Nov. 3, 2 p.m. Nov. 4, 2 p.m. Nov. 5, 7 p.m. Nov. 10, 2 p.m. Nov. 11 and 2 p.m. Nov. 12.

Prices are $9 for adults in advance and $10 at the door; $4 in advance for children 12 and under and $5 at the door; and for students and seniors, it’s $6 in advance and $7 at the door. You can buy tickets at Harmony Books in Nevada City and in Grass Valley at The Book Seller, The Record Connection and BriarPatch Market.
