Wizard of One – StoryBook Theatre
September 17 to 20, 2014
Thursdays to Saturdays at 7pm
Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm
This one-man show re-imagines the classic tale of The Wizard of Oz. Now set in a retirement home, the character of “Dorothy” is played as an elderly man named Frank, who just wants to go home. In his quest to return home he meets Jackson, a loveable old man with dementia (who just needs a brain), Zoey, a crotchety battle axe (looking for some heart) and Jerome, an obsessive-compulsive who’s afraid of everything – everything with germs that is. Together with his three friends, Frank battles to escape the retirement home and free himself from the clutches of his evil, soon-to-be daughter-in-law.
StoryBook is proud to present this original Calgarian work featuring one of last season’s favorite actors, Neil James. Watching this one actor embody all of these characters will open everyone’s imagination to the possibilities of performance and the magic of storytelling.
