There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home….
Well, I tried, but since I’m not wearing my ruby slippers, I didn’t disappear from my Pasadena Views Office and magically appear home!
Before I hit the yellow brick road, I’d like to share with you the activity for Day 163 of 365 Things To Do AROUND Pasadena ;). We bring you exciting news that The Wizard of Oz is in Sierra Madre!
Saturdays from October 23rd through November 13th 2010 at 2:00 p.m.
The Sierra Madre Playhouse will be featuring an interactive Wizard of Oz Play. During each performance, the children in the audience are invited to act as the munchkins of the land. This is sure to be a day of fun for everyone in the family. Parents have your cameras handy! If you are looking for something different to do on a Saturday afternoon, get the whole family out to Sierra Madre! Let your young ones experience the fun of Dorothy, Toto, and all their new friends as they travel to the Emerald City and try and escape the grasp of the Wicked Witch of the West.
Since their humble beginnings, The Sierra Madre Playhouse staff has dedicated themselves to providing Southern California patrons the finest in live, family entertainment.
They have evolved from a theatrical heritage that stretches back to the days when Sierra Madre was just a tiny village. Residents presented dramas and musicals as early as the 1880s in their homes, in the Town Hall, and in the Woman’s Club.
Then in 1923, the structure presently housing the Sierra Madre Playhouse was built. During the ensuing years, it has served as the focal point of the city’s family entertainment center, whether as a movie house, an arcade, or most recently, a theater.
Over the years, the community has supported and raised funds to allow The Sierra Madre Playhouse to flourish and continue to provide the San Gabriel Valley at least 6-8 productions a season.
We do hope you get to take part in their Fairy Tale Theater production of The Wizard of Oz, or any of the other plays offered this season.
Do you have a favorite production of The Sierra Madre Playhouse? As always feel free to share with us your thoughts and stories!
