Pegasus PlayLab: El Wiz

Sunday, June 2, 2019 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Book by Paul Castaneda • Music by Juan Cantu 

Directed by Paul Castaneda 
Music Direction by Josh Ceballos

In a LatinX homage to the classic story, El Wiz is a heartwarming musical tale of faith and familia. Expelled from Puerto Rico by the wrath of Hurricane Maria, Dorothy is magically transported to the spectacular land of NYOz! On her journey, she encounters familiar faces in Espantapájaros (the Scarecrow), the Hombre de Lata (Tin Man) and León (the Lion). If they can only make it to see El Wiz, maybe they will all find what they are looking for.

After the performance, discuss what you saw and heard with the playwright, director and cast. You play a crucial role in the work's development through your feedback!
