Next week the KinderPals will be going to see The Wiz performed by the Yale Secondary Musical Theatre class. Mrs. Hiebert’s son, Matthew, is going to be The Tin Man. He even came to our class to show us his costume. He made it himself! This is what Matthew looks like in his costume with his silver make-up…he didn’t look like this when he came to visit!
The KinderPals have been learning all about the story of The Wiz so that they will understand what they see on stage. The story is similar to The Wizard of Oz. The main characters are Dorothy and the friends she meets in Oz: The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, and The Cowardly Lion.
Ask any of the KinderPals and they should be able to retell the story of how Dorothy got to Oz and how she eventually got home after her adventure! Below you will see the artwork that the KinderPals created to show the four main characters in the story.
