ENC brings this funky reinterpretation of The Wizard of Oz to the stage! With a childlike essence of play and creation, the cast will bring this story to life through imaginative storytelling. Brick by brick, Dorothy meets the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Lion as she seeks the Wizard who is bound to help her find the true meaning of "home." Featuring hip hop dancers, a gospel choir, and actors from ENC and the community, this production is about bridging connections between our differences.

Ten-year-old Kenny chronicles the events of a fateful summer for the Watson family of Flint, Michigan, in this hilarious and deeply moving story. There's Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta and teenage brother Byron, who can't seem to stay out of trouble. Concerned about this budding juvenile delinquent in their family, Momma and Dad decide it's time for Byron to have a lengthy stay with strict Grandma Sands in Birmingham, Alabama. The family piles into the Brown Bomber and heads south—toward a horrific moment in American history: the bombing of the Sixteenth Avenue Baptist Church during which four young black girls are killed. Mr. Curtis' novel was both a Newbery and Coretta Scott King Honor Book.
This show is suitable for ages 8 and up.
