The Wizard of Oz
It’s The Wizard of Oz exactly how you remember it—except the characters are live on stage and the production doesn’t cheap out on the color for the first half. Based on the classic 1939 movie, this live show was first adapted for London’s Royal Shakespeare Company in 1987. The current incarnation was adapted by Joshua Branson Barker and Mindy Barker, and was first performed for 12 sold-out audiences at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center in August 2012.
Joshua Branson Barker and Mindy Barker don't let their Los Angeles address stop them from creating and staging family-friendly productions in Tulsa. After all, the founders of Encore! Theatre Arts hail from the area, and when they're not working on feature films and appearing in shows such as Mad Men and Scandal they return to produce plays and helm workshops. Their work with Encore! goes beyond the stage and classroom, too—they also help design sets and assist directors in casting commercials and other theatrical productions. And their dedication hasn't gone unnoticed. They were recently awarded the You Make a Difference Award from Family & Children's Services thanks to their work with youth in the arts community.
